1. Shetland Wool Week Buggiflooer Beanie - The Locket Land Shop

This year's Shetland Wool Week Hat has been designed by Alison Rendall

After Norse colonisation, Shetlanders spoke their own language which
was called Norn. The language has gradually changed over time with Scottish and English influence but many words remain. This is particularly true of place names, bird and plant names. Buggiflooer is the Shetland word for sea campion which, growing in abundance around Shetland’s coast, is the inspiration behind this design. In my designs I like to support Shetland language and culture by using Shetland words keeping them in the forefront of people’s minds.

My hat pattern has been designed to use either six or two colours, the latter of which I hope will encourage more people to have a go!
