Wilkhaven Sweater Pattern

A printed copy of the Wilkhaven Sweater pattern by Emily K Williams (with Ravelry download code).

Wilkhaven is designed for a worsted spun, non superwash 4ply, and knits up beautifully in Black Isle Yarns Shetland 4ply.

‘A pared-down palette, geometric motifs and a boxy silhouette make for thoroughly modern colourwork. Wilkhaven is inspired by traditional Shetland knitwear, but takes it in a fresh direction with simpler patterning, visible selvage and the up-to-date shorter length.

Worsted spun yarn in richly glowing colours ensures maximum impact. And shape-wise, you’re in control: working from the top down means it’s easy to adapt the length, while the pattern gives three sleeve options for a perfect fit.’

Hannah describes herself as ‘a countryside artist based in the Scottish Borders…… Her work captures a moment in time and conveys the sense of stillness and peace she feels when she is in the countryside’. She certainly captures a countryside that I recognise and feel at home in.
