Sheltie Square

June 2012
Light Fingering / 3 ply ?
21 stitches and 42 rows = 4 inches in garter stitch (knit every row)
US 6 - 4.0 mm
US 7 - 4.5 mm
160 - 1600 yards (146 - 1463 m)
15(36, 42) inches square

This simple, everyday square in three sizes doll(small, large) can be put to work as a baby square or sofa throw and is distinguished by the fluid drama of its scalloped hem, the waves of which are further accentuated by using a random mix of natural colors, to be determined by the knitter. The hem lace is a variation of the easy-to-work feather and fan motif, used in traditional Scottish hap shawls. This design is a tribute to those timeless beauties, now worked in a modern, one-piece construction. Because the hap was a workaday garment, this design is named for the Shetland sheepdog, a working animal which also sports a coat of dramatic shading in brown, gray, and white fur.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
