Þórdís is a shawl in the collection of the Icelandic Handicrafts Association. The original shawl is knitted using extremely fine, double plied handspun þel (undercoat wool of the Icelandic sheep), with white as the main color while the color stripes and lace border are made up of countless greys and natural browns, carded together in such a way that color change is almost imperceptible.This pattern is based on the original as closely and exactly as possible, though the color variations are fewer and have different shade nuances than the handspun yarn.
The kit has so many colors that you will have enough yarn left to knit two more big lace shawls!
Note that Þórdís is only available as an individual pattern when purchased as a Kit. It can not been purchased alone.
Yarn used: Love Story.
