Tina's Mitts


The colours in Tinas Mitts were designed to show playful colours working together. I have adapted this traditional Shetland pattern to work well alongside the colours.

This pattern was used in my first online class: February Knit-Your-Mitts in 2018. This is also the pattern used in the 1st birthday celebrations for Terri Laura.

These are knitted in the round. Double Pointed Needles used: 2.25mm (US 1) and 2.75mm (US 2) - 3 of each or circular).

Da Hömin

Designed as a collaboration with my grandmother, Wilma Malcolmson

Da Hömin is a word used in Shetland to describe the evening twilight. the colours in this hat represent this beautiful time of night here in Shetland.

This is a one size fits all garment, however slightly altering tension and needle sizes would give you room for slight adjustments.

There are 6 colours used, all from Jamiesons of Shetland.

This pattern was initially published as part of the Shetland Wool Week Annual 2016

Billister Lights Curled Cowl

The curled cowl is extremely warm and easy to wear. The inspiration for these colours came from a photograph of the northern lights commonly seen in Shetland during the long winter nights.

Size can be altered by adding or removing a repeat.

I knit these using a traditional Shetland knitting belt, however a circular needle would work perfectly, or any other preferred method that allows you to knit in the round can be used.

It is very important that the casting on and off is done loosely to ensure the cowl is comfortable when worn.

The 'Cherry On Top' Cable Beanie


As a Fair Isle knitter I love working with many colours in each piece of knitting but during the first week of 2018 I felt like I needed to do something different to loosen me up and streach myself before the year got started.. So I made this easy cable knit for myself!
I have written the pattern in a very simple, step-by-step way so that anyone new to cable (like me!) could easily follow it.

Da Hömin Cowl

Small hand knit cowl using the colours and pattern originally used in Da Hömin Hat published in the Shetland Wool Week Annual 2016.

Perfectly warm for everyday wear.

Made using Jamisons of Shetland Spindrift yarn.

I suggest using DPNs 3mm or similar.

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  2. I precisely had to say thanks yet again. I do not know the things I might have sorted out without the entire basics shown by you on such industry. Certainly was a depressing crisis in my circumstances, but understanding this specialised approach you processed the issue took me to jump with delight. Extremely grateful for this assistance and hope you find out what a great job you’re getting into training many people by way of your web blog. More than likely you have never met all of us.

  3. Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive learn something like this before.
