I´m glad, that some people are so interested about my Haapsalu shawl... And I know- Goolge translator is a funny thing. Estonian is not a easy language and translator does not satisfy the needs of real curious knitter. Greetings to Nordwolke :-))
The question was simple- why is this shawl not a real Haapsalu shawl? The answer is simple too- one of important part is missing. I made this shawl for fun, took a part of pattern, modified it a little and made it to repeat. I knit only center and edging. The missing part is border.
Usually Haapsalu square shawl has three pattern- one for center (simple and small), another for border (rich and large) and third for edging. My shawl pattern is big and rich, in original it was a border pattern. Actually I made it as sample, but I loved this pattern and knit it to real big sample :-)) I added edging and... if you please- shawl is ready!
In 2008 I knitted square shawl with three parts. I wear it even today!
