Bollfrans shawl


In this pattern, we focus on the simple, relaxing knitting, stitch by stitch, rib by rib, this beautiful and warming shawl takes shape. Our shawl queen Maria @garnomera Samuelsson has designed Bollfrans and the pattern was Nordic Knitting Society’s Pattern of the Month in December 2022.

“I remember the kitchen curtain in the summer house fwhen I was a child. The curtain had Ball Fringe
and all the balls along the edge of the shawl remind me of it,” says Maria when she describes the Ball Fringe shawl.
