Fína hyrna is a very lovely triangular shawl. The recurrent spider lace motif that you can see in many other Icelandic shawls published by Hélène is knitted from the bottom up, making a nice change for those already familiar with the motif. Stitches are then picked up along the cast on edge and the lace border knitted. As well as clarifying, reworking the charts and adding written instructions, Hélène added 3 more sizes to the shawl to make it bigger (up to 195 cm/76″ wide)! The Volcanic red sample is a size 1 an the Moss green one a size 3.
Fína hyrna is part of the book Þríhyrnur og langsjöl (Triangular and Long Shawls), a reference for traditional Icelandic lace shawls. It is probably the most knitted shawl in Iceland, at least the 30-40 years following World War II, first out of extremely fine handspun yarn made of þel (the soft inner layer of the Icelandic wool) that were so fine they could easily be drawn through a ring. Hélène is very proud that her soft Icelandic Love Story yarn makes it possible as well!
Yarn used: Love Story.
Note that Fína hyrna is only available as an individual pattern when purchased as a Kit. It can not been purchased alone.
