H&O S106: Very Pretty vintage baby shawl knitting pattern 1940s. This one was produced by quite a few pattern suppliers over the years, really traditional Shetland style. The finished shawl measures 60 inches square.  It takes 8oz (250g approx) to knit and Shetland lace weight is suggested, if you cannot get this, try modern 2ply in a tension square and change needles to get the required tension. It is knitted on large needles for the ply to create the light airy softness of this beautiful shawl. Don't forget to block this one carefully to flatten out the peaks at the edges. Always work a tension square and change needles if needed. Pattern in nice condition.
