  • Cyrcus Shawl

    Yarn This shawl can be knitted with different weights of yarn - from cobweb to dk, but I suggest using lace or fine lace weight yarn (approx. 800-1200m/100g)

    The red shawl shown on the pictures was knitted with merino/angora hand- dyed yarn by Fyberspates (approx. 900m/100g) and 3.5mm needles.

    Needles If you use laceweight yarn I suggest using 3.5 - 4mm needles. You will need both straight and/or circular ones.

    Instructions The body of the shawl is knitted to the desired dimensions, then stitches are picked up from all edges and the decorative edging is worked along each side.

    This beautiful lace shawl is based on traditional Estonial designs of Haapsalu shawls. Estonian traditional shawls can be rectangular, square or triangular. They are known for their airy designs and beautiful decorative edgings.



    Cast on very loosly 81 stitches.

    Work 3 rows in stockinette stitch (knit all rows). To cre- ate an easy edge for picking up stitches, the first stitch of every row should be slipped purlwise.

    Starting with a RS row, work the body pattern until you reach desired length of the shawl.

    When the body part reaches the desired length, work 3 rows in stockinette stitch. Do not bind off.

  • Cyrcus Shawl

    With the circular needles, start picking up stitches along each side of the shawl.

    For the first 3 side stitches from the long side, pick up 2 new stitches per each (6 in total).

    Then pick one new stitch per each side stitch unitl you reach last 4 stitches for which you

    again have to pick up 2 stitches.

    Now continue picking up stitches from the short side - 2 new stitches for each of the first

    3 and the last 4 side stitches - 1 stitch for the side stitches between.

    Do the same for the following long side.

    When you reach the live stitches of the last side, (make 1, k1) for the first 3 stitches,

    knit until you reach the last 4 stitches, (make 1, k1) for each of them.

    All WS rows are sl1, k1, p77, k2.

    Cast on 13 stitches, purl them back towards the body, the last stitch of the edging should be knitted as p2tog with the first stitch from the side of the body.

    Now begin to work the edging’s pattern stitches as shown on the chart below, or follow the written instructions ALONG all the sides of the shawl.

    Gradually, all the stitches picked up allong sides will be cast off as the edging is worked along. When you finish working all border stitches, loosely cast off stitches, leaving 20cm tail. For tips & help visit

    When you finish knitting your shawl, place it for 30 minutes in a lukewarm water with a bit of soap. Gently squeeze the shawl to remove the exceeding water (you can wrap in into a towel and step on it

    a couple of times). Stretch the shawl over a bed or carpet and block it using pins. When it’s completely

    dry, sew the sides of the edging together.
