Pattern description from The Celtic Collection: “The arrowhead key pattern that I have chosen for this sweater is an example of Pictish Celtic art from the Nigg stone, an ancient stone cross standing in North Eastern Scotland. It is worked here in a blend of eighteen misty shades that are reminiscent of the early morning colours of lacks and distant hills, and complemented by check patterned borders.”
