Knitting pattern for Marehalm shawl, by Inge-Lis Holst for Önling
‘Marehalm’ (Lyme grass) is a tribute to Fanø Knitting Festival, which has just been held for the very last time. Önling would like to mark this milestone, and the shawl 'Marehalm' is one of our 3 contributions. It is our colleague, Inge-Lis, who has designed this beautiful shawl based on a brief that read as follows: Make a design that pays homage to Fanø Knitting Festival and the many cozy moments we have had there.
This is Inge-Lis' suggestion for a beautiful shawl, to be worn on a cool afternoon by the seaside. The shawl has many, interesting techniques and the color is inspired by the mare straw and the dunes on Fanø.
The shawl is knitted in our lovely, rustic Shetland wool; Önling No 20 by Hanne Falkenberg and our silk mohair Önling No 10. Both yarns are available in so many beautiful colors, so the combination possibilities are many.
