Being so close to my heart it was an honour and delight to create a new knitwear design for local mill, Uist Wool. The brief was to create a wrap and knitting pattern that would showcase the sublime, extra-long ombre gradient of an exclusive version of Uist Wool’s Astair laceweight yarn. And at the same time echo the stark mountain called Hecla, part of a wildly beautiful range on the island of South Uist. Be still my heart – the scythe-shaped Celtic knotwork tip of Hecla Wrap, a design commission for Uist Wool. I hope you enjoy this gallery of photos of two versions of my Hecla Wrap design. The first version is the prototype I created as I finessed the asymmetrical triangle design and the second with its white contrast on the darkest part is my test knit. Available from Uist Wool as a limited edition kit you can find the pattern and smooth flowing light to dark ombre Astair wool and alpaca yarn kit on the Uist Wool website.
