Ultima Thule – a northern-most territory, a distant land, a remote ideal.
The first book from Lost City Knits is available in print format from the LCK website and at festivals and events. Each print book comes with a complimentary ebook code.
Ultima Thule is also available in ebook only format here on Ravelry.
From the intricate cockleshell and birdseye stitches that constitute the airy Sky and Sea Scarf, to the original fish motif of the Kishie Shawl; from the hearty practicality of the Lerwick Harbour Hap, to the elegant Voe Cowl, and to the vine, stone wall, and bumblebee motifs of the ambitious Kailyard Pi Shawl, Ultima Thule is a tribute to the northernmost point of Scotland, the Shetland Islands.
Designer Denise Bell offers a range of patterns, from exquisite lace to sturdy garter stitch, all specifying either her own hand dyed yarns from Lost City Knits or from Jamieson and Smith Wool Brokers of Shetland.
Photographer and essayist Chris Dykes offers a glimpse of Shetland’s remarkable scenery and shares some of his encounters with lifelong Shetlanders.
My apologies knitters, but we have a few notes of errata for Ultima Thule. A new pdf has NOT been uploaded. Please make the changes in your copy! Kishie pg13 On Row 14 of the Set Up, place a marker after the first two stitches and before the last two stitches. These stitches are your edging and will always be knit, never purled. The edging stitches are not included in either of the first two charts, but exist on your needle. Remove all markers before starting the Drops Chart. Lerwick Harbour Half Hap bottom of pg24 should read: Knit 1 row, increasing to 127 stitches. (previously said 123 stitches) Knit 1 row even.
