Pattern description from The Celtic Collection: “I find a strong connection between the abstract Celtic spirals and the hill which occupies a central and dominant position in the view from my home on the Isle of Lewis. Roineval rises in an elegant sweeping curve from the west. Throughout the day an ever-changing play of light and shade on the landscape of hill, moorland and loch makes a fascinating study of shape and colour that I have translated into this design. This fabulous one-size sweater, knitted in a variety of different textured yarns, will fit a range of sizes comfortably.”
