A clever use of reverse colouring adds extra impact to this traditional motif inspired hat and mitts set as well as being an economical use of yarns.

Liz says “When J&S brought out their new Heritage yarn with colours taken from old Fair Isle knitwear, I looked out my photos of items in the small museum on the island to see which motifs were used most on the old items. As β€˜berrets’ have long been worn in Shetland, this was an obvious project. By swopping the colours in the mitts, there is less yarn left over.”

The set needs 1 x 25g ball each of 2 colours (here Berry and Madder) and 2 balls of the third colour (here Flugga white). The actual weight of the beret is about 46g and the mitts are 30g.
