The mysterious selkies are both seal and human. To become human, they shed their seal skin. They turn back into seals by throwing their seal skin over themselves.
As humans they are incredibly beautiful, and many a fisherman has taken a selkie wife, and hidden her seal skin, to ensure that she will stay with him forever. The wife will do everything to find the skin, since selkies prefer being seals. Eventually she will find it, and return to her life in the sea.
Throw this traditional Shetland stole over your shoulders, and see if you turn into a seal too!
Choose cobweb yarn for the traditional Shetland look, or lace or fingering weight yarn for more warmth.

My knitting patterns provide very detailed instructions.

All the thinking has been done for you!
