Description

The Shetland Muse hat by well-known designer Felicity Ford whose work you can find at Knit Sonik is a wonderful example of how inspiration plays out in wool. The eight yarns in this pack are J&S jumper shades 80, 36, FC37, FC38, FC7, 90, 21, and 53. 

Felix – as she is affectionately called – wrote: This colourwork hat takes its palette and imagery from a poem of the same name by Raman Mundair – a poet and artist who has made Shetland her home. Shetland Muse – as its title suggests – speaks to the charismatic lure of Shetland as a place; to the many ways that these islands inspire through their textures, weather and light.

The palette for my design is taken from the following lines of the poem:

Outside dark molasses 
absorbs the last juice 
from a misshapen tangerine

(the browns and the oranges)

The wind furious at being 
ignored whips the ocean to a roar.

(the deep stormy blues)

While most sleep, 
my ink luminous marks magic true.

(the pale oranges and corals used together, to make luminosity)

You can get the pattern (and read the full poem) in the Shetland Wool Week 2019 Annual.

Supplies are limited.
