Jeg Lagde Meg

Jeg Lagde Meg (As I Lay Down) is the third shawl (along with Havsfrun and She’s Like the Swallow) in a set of three shawls released as part of  the Folk Song KAL.
In the Norwegian folk song Jeg Lagde Meg (As I Lay Down), the singer finds out that his beloved is ill. He hurries to her side only to find that he has arrived too late and she has died. He then sings of his grief – no one has been loved more than she.
The shawl is knit from the bottom up. The pattern is charted, with lace patterning on every other row.
