Heron Island is one of the 11 modern, minimalist patterns featured in Issue 2 of Making Stories Magazine, available on October 29.

“There is something about lace around my shoulders that I find immensely elegant.

Combined with a circular yoke and top down construction, it’s also simple to knit and simple to wear.” - Beatrice
