Skakki

A Skakki is a traditional garter stitch Icelandic shawl. My design has a twist to it with the decorative bands of openwork that cover the entire wingspan. Each band is different: some of the motifs come from different areas in Iceland or can be found in other traditional Icelandic shawls. The Skakki is almost like a sampler! It is knitted from the top down in the manner that was common for such shawls in the Westfjords of Iceland.

Yarn used: Icelandic Feldfé wool or Gilitrutt Tvíband
