The last time I’m busy knitting on time-consuming projects. One of them is finished and I want to show it to you.
I have done this pattern using “The Haapsalu Shawl“, a great book from Siiri Reimann & Aime Edasi.
It is knitted with Rowan Fine Lace and measures 75 cm (29,5in) wide and 180 cm (71in) long after blocking.
Here are some more pictures:
Why do I call this pattern Maria in the Valley?
Because the original pattern is called “Reversed Lily of the Valley” Pattern. And I have sent this shawl to Maria Niedermayer, my fellow Rowan Ambassador, who is celebrating her birthday today.
You may learn more about Maria on the blog of Cindi Brumpton: Introducing Rowan Ambassador Maria.
Happy Birthday, Maria! Hope you like the shawl.
By the way: I have written a pattern for this shawl. You can download it for free at

Hallo Konrad, das ist so lieb von Dir. Vielen herzlichen Dank! Das ist mein allerliebstes Strickmuster, wunderschön!

Hi Konrad, today I feel like spending my day in a spaceship , as you give away your gorgeous work. I am so overwhelmed by your generosity and kindness.
I love the second photo where the nubbs appear to meander along the shawl. Just gorgeous – worth every moment!
I recognized this view during blocking the shawl. I had to take the photo at ounce. It looks like there are pearls on the shawl. Thank you Nicki.
The shawl is magnificent. The gift wrapping is simply beautiful. PS……my birthday is January 3.
Good to know! Thank you so much!
What a beautiful shawl, Konrad. And so generous of you to be giving it away!
