Like the wings (‘tiivad’) of a bird, this shawl has a texture that ruffles in the breeze. The knitted fringes on the shawl are inspired by the stripes and edge trim seen on many traditional mittens.
Tiivad is a stunning shawl pattern from Aleks Byrd, as part of her new book Traditions Revisited. A love letter to both Aleks’ heritage and knitting itself, Traditions Revisited is a collection of 19 beautifully crafted designs and hand drawn illustrations to guide readers through Aleks’ favourite traditional Estonian knitting techniques.
We were thrilled when Aleks asked to use Preseli for this stunning shawl pattern, and we've put together some yarn kits from the team to reflect how we'll be choosing the colours!
You save around 10% by purchasing the yarn as part of a kit.
Please note that these yarn kits do not include a copy of the book or pattern.
