A Touch of Scandinavian

‘Tornved’ by Karie Westermann was a pattern I was first alerted to after seeing Suuf’s beautiful example on Ravelry, made from John Arbon’s Exmoor Sock, which shows the versatility of this lovely pattern. Karie is originally Danish, but now calls Glasgow her home. Inspired by Karie’s great Grandmother, Lily, who taught her to knit, and named after the small, rural hamlet where Lily lived, this pattern is priced at £3.50.

It’s a pattern for a lace and (optional) beaded, triangular shawl, designed specifically for that special single skein of yarn. What’s not to love? It would be equally stunning in silk or an alpaca/silk blend, to give that shine and drape that would work so well in a beaded shawl. As evidenced by Suuf, it works just as nicely in a sturdy, breed specific sock blend too, so merino or BFL based skeins are going to be winners too.

What would you knit yours in?
