Shetland Hartland Shawl

While in Edinburgh in March I purchased two huge cones of Shetland yarn in lovely Sage Green and Raspberry.  The yarn has that lovely authentic feel and smell and is a joy to work with.   I think over the next 12 months there will be a lot of patterns featuring these yarns.

Finding a pattern that would suit this yarn and reflect the rustic feel of the yarn was difficult but finally I came across Hartland Cliffs  by Sonja Bargielowska.  Link    This is a free pattern that  was designed for Blacker yarns and is reversible.  Lots of short rows and pattern changes to keep things interesting.  I was very happy with the outcome – a lightweight and warm shawl.   This is a pattern that could be easily modified to suit your stash and colour preferences.
