The weather up here reminds me of one of my dad’s favourite sayings - “There’s no mystery in the weather. If it’s sunny now, it’ll be raining later; if it’s raining now, it’ll be sunny later.”
Yarn-wise, you’ll need 2 balls in 203 (grey), and 1 ball each in 93 (red), 91 (orange), 23 (yellow), 47 (green), 18 (blue) and 20 (purple). You’ll only need a small amount of each of the colours, but pretty much full balls of the grey.
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.
