Fir Cone Lace Shawl & Scarf

Designer Becky ffitch, our lace teacher, was inspired by the traditional Shetland lace patterns found in historic stitch dictionaries. Our rectangular shawl and scarf begin with sideways sawtooth garter-stitch edgings. The length is then knitted in a classic Fir Cone eyelet pattern that’s lacy enough to make you feel pretty and opaque enough to be cozy. Just the thing for a tromp on the moors!

The pattern also includes instructions for creating a simple lace edging, shown here sewn to a silk half-slip peeking out from under our skirt. The pattern gives other ideas for how to use this sweet little strip of knitted lace.

Scarf: Approx. 71⁄2 x 72”/19 x 183cm, after blocking.

Shawl: 7 skeins Jamieson’s Shetland Ultra (210 yds /192m each); shown in Color 102. Or approx. 1470 yds/1345m of an equivalent lace-weight yarn.

Edging only: Approx. 3–4yds/m of lace-weight yarn per inch of knitted edging; shown in Isager Spinni Wool 1 for skirt edging.
