This Weeks PDF patterns

Hello everyone, the days are getting brighter here in Shetland! We are continuing to add patterns online and this week’s PDF patterns added to Lovecrafts and Ravelry are:

The Rosemary Shawl CW115 by Gladys Amedro is one of our best selling 1ply Shawl patterns, its currently only available in written form (no charts) and using Gladys’ abbreviations but once you get them in your head it’s very clear. We have plans to also offer it in a charted form so keep an eye out for that!

It can be knit in either 1ply Cobweb (available in Black and White) or 1ply Shetland Supreme (available in Natural White, Fawn, Moorit, Black and Grey)

The Fine Lace Stole and Scarf is another of Gladys 1ply Patterns, the pattern contains instructions for a stole (pictured above – 60″ x 22″) or a scarf (45″ x 15″) it contains traditional Shetland Lace motifs like the Ring Stitch, Print of the Wave and a peaked edging. Again this can be knit in either 1ply Cobweb or 1ply Shetland Supreme. This also is a written out pattern and uses Gladys’ abbreviations.

The Lynsey Jumper by Joyce Ward is a classic Fair Isle Allover jumper knit in Shetland Supreme Jumper Weight, the undyed yarns and traditional Shetland motifs make for a timeless gansey. It uses corrugated rib and steeks for the arm and neck holes. It can also be knit in 2ply Jumper Weight but you will need to account for the difference in yardage between Supreme and Dyed Jumper Weight (the Supreme is sold in 50g balls and 2ply Jumper in 25g but its not exactly double the amount)

Another fun pattern we’ve added this week is the Fair Isle Tea Cosy designed by Masami Yokoyama. This pattern only uses 3 colours of 2ply Jumper Weight and also utilises steeks for the handle and spout so it makes a great introduction to Fair Isle knitting and steeks in a smaller project.

As always if there are any J&S patterns you would like to have available as a download let us know and we will try to get them on, happy knitting!

    Just lovely, all of them and yes, once you get used to Gladys abbreviations it is no problem.
