Elska by Ysolda Teague

A traditionally patterned Fair Isle hat in a less traditional slouchy shape. Shown inJamieson and Smith Heritage and Heritage Naturals a unique worsted spun Shetland wool which blocks into a fine, smooth fabric. The geometric stitch patterns were chosen to work well with the crisp stitch definition of the yarn. The pattern is given in three sizes, due to the 30 stitch pattern repeat the middle size is worked by changing the gauge. Decreases are worked into the final pattern band, which was inspired by the crowns of traditional Fair Isle tams, working the shaping close to the top creates a slightly gathered effect. There will be plenty of the coloured yarn leftover to make a pompom, a cute addition if you can bear to cover up the crown pattern. The large stitch pattern is from the endlessly inspiring A Shetlander’s Fair Isle Graph Book.

Sheep Heid by Kate Davies

The (very quickly) world famous Sheep Heid by Kate Davies.

Kate says:

"Sheep Heid uses all 9 natural shades of Jamieson and Smith Shetland Supreme Jumper Weight, showcasing the variety of fleece colours in this marvelous yarn – just in time for Shetland Wool Week!

Horned rams appear atop the crown . . .

. . . while the brim features thirteen rather stolid-looking moorit sheep.

From start to finish, this hat was a complete joy both to design and make. Supreme jumper weight has to be the ultimate yarn for stranded knitting – one feels that the yarn just wants to be worked in this way!"

This kit contains pattern and yarn to knit Sheep Heid.

3mm (US 2-3) x 40cm DPN or 3mm (US 2-3) x 80cm circular needle

Cruden

A traditional Fair Isle vest worked from the bottom up entirely in the round. The neck and armholes are steeked and the front shoulders are worked slightly longer than the back to both drop the back neckline for a better fit and to allow the stitch patterns to flow over the shoulder. Detailed instructions for finishing the steeks with crochet are provided. After cutting the steeks open stitches are picked up around the armholes and neck and ribbed bands are worked in one of the contrast colours for a slightly sporty detail. The colourwork is simple but effective alternating a smaller and larger motif, the larger of which is offset on alternate repeats.

Wee Carson Kit by Ysolda Teague

The perfect introduction to traditional stranded colourwork techniques. The body and sleeves are worked upwards from the folded hems separately to the underarm and joined for the seamless raglan yoke. Shaping for well-padded bottoms is provided by way of a cute gathered detail at the back and the cuffs can be folded up to show the contrasting inner hem. The pointed pixie hood continues without interruption and is joined at the top with a 3 needle bind-off.

For the Fair-Isle band stitches are then picked up all the way around the front edge. The gap at the bottom is temporarily bridged with a short cast on and the Fair-Isle band is worked in the round with no shaping or purling. An easy I-cord bind-off gives a polished finish. The short steek is cut (not nearly as scary as it sounds!) to re-open the bottom edge and the zipper is installed. The jacket is completed with ribbon to neatly cover the cut edges and zipper tape.
