Added to cart
Amalia is a crescent shaped shoulder shawl with a lace border adapted from the Portuguese Edging in A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara G. Walker.

A wider edging with the lace worked on both sides combines with garter stitch short rows in a shoulder shawl designed to unleash the inner fadista* in any adventurous intermediate knitter.

Amalia can be made in two sizes, and the pattern includes both written and charted instructions along with a schematic for blocking to finished size.

* a female singer of fado, the musical genre from Portugal. Amalia is named after the woman known as the “Queen of Fado”, Amália Rodrigues.
