This pattern is named for the location where it’s shot - and where I stayed during Shetland Wool Week, with a friend’s very lovely parents!
The colours are Emerald 792 (dark green), Laurel 329 (light green), Petrol 750 (dark blue), Sky 130 (light blue), Scarlet 500 (red) and Salmon 301 (pink). These are the same colours as my Thomas Street ecosy, which will be added to the Shetland Story ebook when the rights revert to me next month.

This pattern is part of my collection “Shetland Story”, produced in celebration of Shetland Wool Week. The 7 patterns that make up the collection will be released over the next couple of weeks and they each use Shetland wool of different types. The photos have all been taken during my trip to Shetland too.
All of the patterns are designed to be knit quickly and easily, since we’re heading in to gift-knitting season, and to encourage knitters to try out Shetland yarn if they’ve not used it before.
