We have included another Heritage patternthis year; this time working with Ella Gordonwho has taken inspiration from a 1950s jumper in the Shetland Museum's textile collection.
And for the first time we have included a pattern from one of our young knitters, Jenny Jamieson, who is a secondary school student in Whalsay. With help from her biology teacher (and keen knitter!) Caroline Simpson she has created a beautiful old shale lace cowl in sea shades redolent of the markings on a mackerel.
Another highlight is from Hazel Tindall who has written an ingenious pattern that takes just six balls of yarn and can be knit into four different pairs of mitts; a brilliant and clever use of yarn, design and maths!
