Jane chose to use Jamieson's Spindrift yarn for this project - Jamieson's are a small company based on the Shetland Isles, where their yarns are sourced, spun and dyed.
The kit contains 13 balls of Jamieson's Spindrift yarn, an 8 page pattern brochure and a Janie Crow sew in label.
The size of the shawl is approx 160cm x 85cm
The name of a repeated tessellating design, like the one Jane has used in this shawl, is called an 'Ogee' pattern in Arabesque design. It took Jane a few weeks to get the design of these blocks right; initially she came up with loads of really complicated ways to create this motif, but in the end it was so simple - funny how sometimes a design process can take so long and then the outcome can be so easy to make!
The pattern for the lantern shape motif is based on a granny hexagon pattern, but Jane has made a few changes to come up with the curved design the tessellates.
