Knitting Instructions/Patterns

In addition to the traditional Danish Tie-Shawls, I’m now offering additional patterns that you might be interested in. The patterns are identified with order numbers, the number of pages in the pattern and the price. At the bottom of the page you will find a table that summarizes all the available items. The patterns are for personal use only.

The Moebius scarf has many uses; draped over the shoulders it keeps them warm and looks attractive. Should it get cooler, it can be pulled over the head. It can also be wrapped twice around the neck and, if it is very cold, pulled up like a hat.

This vest is both practical as well as elegant and can be worn with either side showing.   The pattern has a different appearance, depending on which side is used as right side.
The knitting instructions for the dark blue vest are in European size 40 (approx. medium in North American sizing).  The grey vest is for European size 50 (approx. large).
The buttons on the collar make it possible to close the vest at the top.
This vest can also be made without provisions for buttons.

The pattern for this garment includes a detailed drawing.  This makes it easier to personalize the instructions to suit individual sizes and thus guarantees a better fit.

Lotte knitted this vest and sweater from a silk/wool blend to suit her own measurements.   However, this picture shows our model Irina wearing Lotte’s vest.

I dyed the yarn with Cochenille.

The pattern is also suitable for a jacket.  The yarn should be firmly spun so that the coat doesn't stretch or bulge.  To this end, it is useful to overtwist the yarn slightly.  No need to worry about the garment tracking!  The unique pattern of the coat accommodates a slightly overtwisted yarn.

This coat is versatile, durable and practical.  It can be an ordinary housecoat or a dressy coat for a concert or theatre.  If you're attending an outdoor production and the seat is cold, you can even fold it up and use it as a cushion!

The pullover
and his proud owner!

This pullover is in a classic style and can be worn by women and men alike.   It is also totally reversible since there are no seams.   In this picture you see the side that shows as vertical ridges, because that’s what Dorothea prefers.  The reverse side consists mainly of stockinette stitches and appears therefore smoother.

She has now devised a simpler way to create the same look, using a circular needle. The instructions for this shawl are easy to follow. Lotte

Heather Shawl

Occasionally I am asked about the difference between the Tie Shawl and the Heather Shawl. Both shawls tie in the back but they have a different structure and shape, as you can see from the illustration above. When knitting the Tie Shawl, you increase stitches at the top of the shawl. When knitting the Heather Shawl, you increase stitches in the middle and at the border.


Click HERE to see a variety of other shawls. Though they are based on common instructions (either for the “Heidetuch” or the “Bindetuch”), they are as different as the people who created them!


The Spring 2008 edition of the American magazine SPIN OFF featured my description of traditional Danish Tie-Shawls. It also included the relevant knitting instructions. The article was the result of a collaborative effort and was written with input by Lotte Wackerhagen, Friedl Ballaban and Mechthild Fischer.

The Lily of the Valley pattern von Edith Haller
was published in Spin Off, Spring 2004.

The pattern, which had its origin in Hapsal (Estonia) is intricately linked to the history of Edith Haller. The American magazine SPIN OFF published my article in March 2004 and I want to thank everyone who helped to put it together.
