Product Description

Shetland Lace, characterized by eyelet patterns against a garter stitch background, is a centuries-old technique originating on an island off the northern coast of Scotland.  Historically, knitters used this technique to make gossamer-thin shawls that are treasured for their delicate beauty.  In this updated use of the technique, we're creating a lovely cowl.  In its single-wrapped version, the cowl adds a colorful accent to a cool weather wardrobe, and can also be pulled up over the head, scarf-style, to block the wind.  In the double-wrapped version, the cowl provides more snuggly warmth at the neck.

The Shetland Shores Cowl is knit on US Size 5 needles.

Kits Include:
1. One skein of Sock-aholic® II, Sock-aholic® Old No.8, or Sock-aholic® Confootie in your choice of color as shown above.  (Please note there is an additional $2 charge for Sock-aholic Confootie.)

2. A commemorative Scottie Dog Stitch Marker to ensure that you always have a friend to knit this project with.  

3. and... The Shetland Shores Cowl pattern by Wendy Gaal. PDF version will be sent automatically, with an option to have the pattern sent to your Ravelry Library, too. If you also need the Hard Copy, please select that option above.

Yarn:

 

Sock-aholic® II  is dyed by hand at our brewery using a super soft and smooth 4-ply Luxury Sock Yarn made from 75% Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon. Each skein contains approximately 470 yards, and knits at a gauge of 7-9 stitches per inch using size 1-2 needles. This yarn maintains beautiful stitch definition when used for pattern stitches, is strong enough to support lace work, and its softness makes it a pleasure to handle and wear.

 

Sock-aholic® Old No.8 is dyed by hand at our brewery using a wonderfully soft 8-ply Luxury Sock Yarn made from 90% Superwash Merino and 10% Nylon.  Each 100g skein contains approximately 410 yards, and knits at a gauge of 7-9 stitches per inch using size 1-2 needles. This yarn has a smooth and refined appearance, and will help you create elegant fingering weight projects.

Sock-aholic® Confootie is dyed by hand at our brewery using a wonderfully soft 2-ply Luxury Sock Yarn made from 85% Superwash Merino and 15% polyamide in a rainbow of nep colors.  Each 100g skein contains approximately 435 yards, and knits at a gauge of 7-9 stitches per inch using size 1-2 needles. This yarn has a festive neppy texture and appearance, and will help you create super fun fingering weight projects.

Washing Instructions for all Sock Yarns: Hand washing in cool water is recommended to prolong the life of any hand-knit or hand-crocheted item. This yarn may also be gently machine washed in cool water. Roll in a towel to remove excess water (do not twist or wring), and lay flat to dry away from direct sunlight.
