Pattern Description:

The north and west coasts of Scotland hold a spattering of islands, many little more than rocks strewn in a stormy sea. These are windswept places, landscapes scoured round and smooth by time, glaciers, and ocean winds.

This pullover features lace inspired by this wave-battered and windswept landscape, knit in a yarn dyed on the Isle of Skye.

Note: this pattern includes charted lace instructions only, the chart is not written out.
