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 http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hartland-cliffs. 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.
