MARY HENDERSON loves the knitting
traditions of Scotland, and in particular
Fair Isle colourwork. She has used
classic flower motifs and corrugated
ribbing to create her hat and mittens
set; working them in two bright colours
gives them a modern feel. Mary has used
Superfine Alpaca DK from UK Alpaca,
a soft and lofty DK-weight blend with
a gorgeous handle.

UK Alpaca Superfine Alpaca DK
(DK weight; 70% superfine alpaca, 30% wool;
112m/122yds per 50g ball)

A Mustard (0515) and B Rose Pink (0714)
1 x 50g ball of each colour to make either
the beret or the mittens
