“Peerie flooers” means “little flowers” in Shetland dialect.
In the Summer, Shetland’s coastline and moorland spring to life with the jewel-like colours of tiny wildflowers. These have wonderfully evocative names, such as “buggie flooer” (sea campion), “sookie flooer” (lousewort), and “lammas flooer” (eybright). This hat celebrates the colours of Summer in a happy riot of peerie flooers.
The pattern includes instructions for two sizes (small and medium – size ‘small’ is pictured) and full colour charts.
You will need 1 of each of the following shades of Jamieson and Smith Jumper Weight: 202, fc11, 14, fc12, 91, 9113, fc15; a 40cm/ 3mm circular needle, and a longer 3mm circ (or dpns) for working the top of the crown.
