A printed copy of the Shivelight hat pattern.

The Shivelight uses 4 x 30g skeins of Gotland DK in four natural undyed shades (Cream, Silver, Grey and Charcoal).  It is a striking colour-work cowl capturing ‘lances of sunlight piercing the woodland canopy and the shadows cast on the woodland floor’ (quote from the beautiful poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins).

Shivelight could also be knit in one of the Coulmore DK Naturally Dyed Mini Skein sets.

‘Shivelight’ is a beautiful cowl designed by my talented and very kind friend Claire (Claieinstitches) .  It is a snuggly colour-work cowl knit with four shades of my Gotland DK (Cream, Silver, Grey and Charcoal).  This stunning design is by my friend Claire and it has been designed to be a good stepping-stone into the world of colour-work, as well as being an enjoyable knit for the more experienced. Claire was inspired by the woods on the Black Isle and the design perfectly captures ‘lances of sunlight piercing the woodland canopy and the shadows cast on the woodland floor’. Quote from the beautiful poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins:

‘……Down roughcast, down dazzling whitewash,

wherever an elm arches, Shivelights & shadowtackle

in long lashes lace, lance & pair……’
