Lakeland was originally published in Issue 4 of Laine Magazine. Inspired by icy winter temperatures and salty ocean gales, Lakeland blends together elements of Fiona’s native country Canada and her new home, Finland. Fiona grew up on a street named Lakeland and felt it was a fitting name for this new design since Finland’s endearing nickname is ‘land of a thousand lakes’. The texture of the diagonal lines mimics waves washing over a beach.

This pattern can also be found in issue 4 of Laine Magazine.

Lakeland is addictive to knit: the bottom ribbing is worked flat, in three separate sections. These sections are then joined together, and the body is worked in the round until the armhole shaping begins. The sleeves are fairly loose and can be worn down or rolled back to create big cuffs.
