Description

Public hiking paths abound in Shetland. The paths, maintained by Access Shetland, traverse both public and private lands, allowing people to enjoy the best Shetland scenery. 

One doesn’t go hiking in Shetland without a sweater or vest.

The colors I chose for my original Barrey Hiking Vest were grey and white Langsoond Shetland wool from our friend Donna Smith who lives on a croft in Burra. I wanted those colors to stand out, so I used a Norwegian Lice Pattern for the body, and a simple two-color diamond band for a motif. Because of the Norwegain influences, I adopted the Old Norse name for the Isle of Burra – Barrey.

This garment is worked in the round from the hem up, with steeks for the armholes and front opening. Stitches for the front band are picked up after steeking the center front. Shaping can be added by increasing or decreasing the number of stitches flanking the side seam.

The Barrey Hiking Vest looks great in natural shades but there are so many color possibilities with this vest that we have put together a few kits.

This kit is for the Ash Heather and White Vest in a size 36″ – Background Shade 0056 and Motif Shade 051. With this kit you’ll receive a Ravelry download code for the pattern and enough yarn (Motif Shade – 1 and Background Shade – 4) for the smallest size which is 36″.  (This pattern is intended to be worn with 2-4 inches of positive ease)

For larger sizes please read the yarn requirements below and order additional yarn for the Background Shade and the Motif Shade as directed.
