So, it’s coming up to spring time in Scotland. The weather here is never predictable, but at this time of year there can be snow and blizzards one day and then warm sunshine the next.

Ferness has textured stripes, a relaxed silhouette and compound raglan shaping, which combine to create flattering lines at the shoulder. The recommended yarn creates a light and lofty fabric with a lovely gentle drape, making this the perfect versatile garment when the weather changes the goalposts every 10 minutes.
