Evening Shore Kit
(Õhtu Kallas Rätik)

The scarf begins at the top edge with the scalloped lace edging and decreases down to the point. The outer scalloped edge is knitted separately and then sewn on to the center. Õhtu Kallas means Evening Shore in Estonian, and is the name of one of the quiet streets in Haapsalu.

Quiet Shore Shawl Kit
(Vaikne Kallas Rätik)
by Nancy Bush

This pattern was inspired by the Sofia pattern from Haapsalu, Estonia. This lace pattern was found in the UKU archives (a craft co-operative) in the 1970’s and is attributed to Haapsalu knitter Sinaida Sõer (1916-1980). A shawl with Sõer's pattern was commissioned by the President of Estonia and given as a gift to Queen Sofia of Spain in 2009 during a state visit. The pattern is now known as 'Sofia'.

Greta Garbo Shawl Kit
by Nancy Bush

This shawl was originally planned for Nancy’s book, Knitted Lace of Estonia, but space was tight. Now, it is available from the Wooly West. The central heart motif was designed in the 1930’s in Haapsalu, Estonia where it decorated a shawl that was given to the film diva. This modern pattern is like ones knit in Estonia today.

The kit includes 2 skeins of Nordic Lites in your choice of color and the pattern—$32.00 ('Pattern only' available for $10.00)
