knittedyarns Estonian Lace Scarf Inspired Shawl KAL

A few of my knitting buddies and I are planning to start an Estonian Lace KAL inspired by the Triinu Shawl that I made my mother. As the basis for the pattern that we plan to knit, we are using The Estonian Lace Scarf by Helene Wallin 2006. It has 21 projects on Ravelry.
