Phew! Things are really busy round here today! There is just time to show you the fourth design from Colours of Shetland – - the Northmavine Hoody.
Just like the accompanying hap, the hoody is inspired by the blues and greens of the rocks and water that shape the turbulent landscape of Northmavine.
The hoody uses exactly the same shades, in a subtly-shaded striped sequence.
The hap and the hoody don’t just share a colourway but a functional origin, which I discuss further in the book. . . .
This hoody is simple and classic in construction, and like many of the garments in Colours of Shetland, the pleasures of the design really are in the detail. It features inset pockets . . .
which are lined in a soft angora yarn, as well as turned facings which pick up the colours of the stripes and which are finished with . . .yes, you guessed it – i-cord.
As well as adding further pops of colour, the facings also have a purpose — to enable trouble-free zip insertion . . .
. . . fastening thus. . .
This is a garment designed for casual comfort and ease, to be worn as you will . . .
. . . whether you are out for a paddle . . .
Or enjoying a chilly walk on Ronas Hill
You can now find all relevant yarn, shade and yardage requirements over on the Northmavine Hoody pattern page.
