This book is the first one with detailed instructions of techniques and patterns. In Estonia a true Haapsalu shawls (square, triangular and rectangular shawls) are made with openwork lace patterns, and if there is a lacy edge, it is always knitted separately and sewn to the completed center section by hand.
The Haapsalu shawl is so very lacy and thin that it is possible to drag a shawl through a ring.
Why I had written so much about Haapsalu shawl? Because I was started knitting the one :)Pin It
