Looking out across a loch, surrounded by mountains is a little croft house with a red roof. This knitting pattern was inspired by that house which is located on the Applecross Peninsular, West Coast of Scotland. With little house embellishments and contrast edging these cosy’s will keep your breakfast eggs warm as toast.
