The gemstone Larimar, after which I named this shawl and which is found exclusively in the Dominican Republic, was the inspiration for this model. The design of „Larimar Blue“ incorporates elements of historic rug embroidery from Asia Minor, combined with a beautiful gradient of 6 shades of blue and beige.
The shawl in original Shetland wool is knitted flat in one piece from the bottom up (not in the round). Finally, a crochet hook is used to attach the fringes.
„Larimar Blue“ is also part of my E-Book „Midsummer“, along with 8 other beautiful models.
