As well as fair isle patterns, Shetland is also known for the fine lace shawls and stoles produced in the 19th century which were made popular by Queen Victoria. I wanted to produce a design to reflect these 2 styles, creating this 2-tone fair isle pattern which uses a delicate combination of stitches reminiscent of lace.
