Wearing the capacious Safe Harbor Shawl feels like being hugged! It is constructed Faroese style in five parts: two side panels bracket a center gusset, and each side panel has a selvedge band. Subtle decreases at the shoulder create a secure fit. Six large eternal knots forms of garter lace embellish the bottom border.
The shawl can easily be made smaller or larger by changing the gauge. Any fingering or lace weight yarn is appropriate.
