Þordís

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. It is part of Sigríður Halldórsdóttir’s book Þríhyrnur og langsjöl 1988 (Triangular and long shawls), a reference for Icelandic lace shawls published in the book. Hélène reworked the charts and added written instructions, while the use of her Love Story yarn gets the shawl closer to the original one in finesse.

The PDF contains charted and written instructions and cannot be purchased alone.
