Notes

I actually bought the Osprey Spindrift from the Jamieson’s mill in Sandness, Shetland - it was a great drive out there on the west coast! The CC Eggshell shade is the very palest of blues: just seemed to work well with the Osprey.

Mods: sleeves to 19.5” (including cuffs). The overall length has blocked out longer than the pattern measurements, but that’s fine with me.

This has knitted up like a dream… such a pretty, delicate and uncomplicated stranded pattern; I would think really quite suitable for a first-time stranded knitter.
