This Weeks Patterns

Hello Everyone, thanks for the feedback on our post last week, we have added more patterns to be available on loveknitting as PDF’s and now also on Ravelry!

So you can find the Roadside, Antartica set and Allover and the Hairst on Ravelry here.

This week’s patterns are:

The Guizers Toorie, although we are out with Up Helly Aa season now there is plenty of time to knit one for next year! Sandra originally designed this hat for me (Ella) to wear while watching UHA and we were often asked for the pattern, earlier this year we finally got it done and out. Knit in fiery shades of 2ply Jumper Weight it features rows of Guizers (torchbearers) making they’re way up to the burning galley/pompom!

Christina Christening Gown was designed by Sandra to commemorate the birth of Prince George and the pattern was originally available in Women’s Weekly. We wanted to have the pattern available in a charted format so thanks to Heather we were able to do that, we would class this as an advanced lace project, it is knit in 1ply Shetland Supreme Lace.

Aran Harpa is another reincarnation of a pattern we previously had, Sandra reworked the chunky version of this pattern in our Shetland Aran Worsted which makes for a very soft yet warm interpretation of this Icelandic style yoke. The yarn had excellent stitch definition and the solid shades make for a very stand out yoke!

The Gremista Gansey was knitted from a jumper in the collection of the Shetland Textile Museum, a number of years ago we were approached by the museum with a selection of garments. This was the one Sandra chose to recreate as we felt it was an excellent introduction to Gansey style knitting. Its worked in the round to the oxters then back and forth, its also knit in Shetland Aran Worsted.

There will be more patterns added over the next few weeks, again if there is any specific patterns from our pattern archive you would like let us know, Happy Knitting!

    This is a great little gansey. I must admit, the part I love most in your description is the word “oxters”, my gran used to use that word. Hadn’t thought of it in years! We don’t say it in the U.S.
