Pattern description from the The Celtic Collection: “The arrowhead key pattern, worked in a single colour, proves equally successful as a textured design. Knitted on fine needles in a silk and wool yarn, raised purl stitches against a stocking stitch background produce an effect that is very detailed and luxurious. The style is based on the traditional fisher gansey - close fitting and seamless, with diamond-shaped underarm gussets that is very much in keeping with knitting traditions from the Scottish East Coast.”
