This is the photo I took this summer at the museum, below is the shawl I just finished
The original shawl belongs to Vendsyssel Museum in Denmark. It is a modern (1897 )version of the Danish Tie- Shawl, Vibeke Lind writes about in her book Knitting in The Nordic Tradition. The differences are that The Shawl has an upper and lower border that are stitched together and used for tie-bands. This shawl is not only knitted in garter stitch like the old tie-shawls(1880). There is a pattern of stockinette stitch which is elastic and the shawl fits better round the shoulders. It has been a tense knitting adventure and I am very pleased with the result.
