Knitting kit for Margrethe shawl in Önling No 1
Margrethe shawl is not just an accessory; it is a declaration of love, a celebration of Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II’s presence in our hearts and history. Let us wear this shawl with pride and honor, as a symbol of our gratitude for her 52 years on the throne.
The Margrethe shawl is a beautifully warm accessory that can easily be used as a scarf on cold days. Here you can knit something that slips easily through the fingers without complex diagrams, counting, or intricacies. Once you get through the first 9 rows, it’s easy to memorize the increases, and you can knit freely until the shawl reaches the desired dimensions. Finally, we embellish it with a beautiful leaf lace at the bottom.
Here we knit Margrethe shawl in our luxurious Önling No 1, which gives an ultrasoft and a snug and warm feeling against the skin.
The yarn kit contains: Önling No 1, yarn for the elected size and a pattern.

The shawl is started at the neck and knitted back and forth in knit and purl stitches. Work garter ridges along both sides as edges. And in every 7th stripe, knit a row of holes. The shawl is divided into 5 sections, separated by 4 ‘strands’, consisting of 2 sts each. Increases are made with different frequencies along the different strands and these increases are made with yarn overs forming fine holes. There are also 2 ‘strands’ just inside the garter ridge edges, where increases are made.
The shawl is reversible. It is finished with a fine knitted lace, that is knitted on at the end, along the edge at the bottom while binding off.
The price of the yarn kit is calculated based on the amount of yarn included, which is the amount we have used to knit the design according to the above measurements. Should you need more yarn, additional yarn can be purchased at regular prices by placing an order and state lot number in the comment box at checkout. All designs have been thoroughly calculated and tested.
