Variations on the Theme of Orkney Lace

Now in my Etsy and Ravelry shops!  This ebook is a collection of patterns using a variety of lace stitches used in Orkney over the years.  Some of these are common to Shetland, others are not.

The patterns in the book are for scarves, cushion covers, stole, wrap, shawl, throw and cape.  All  can be knitted in a variety of yarn thicknesses from cobweb to aran.

Over the winter, folk in my Ravelry Northern lace group have been getting the patterns bit by bit as a mystery KAL.  There are plenty of pix for the different projects from here.

I made the scarf in several shades of Frangipani 5 ply:

And my cushion cover in hand dyed North Ronaldsay aran weight:

My throw is in Colinette Skye and Giotto:

And my  wrap and cape is in J&S 2 ply lace weight:

The pattern for the scarf and the one for the throw and shawl are both available separately.

And prices?  The ebook is £10/15$, the separate patterns are £3.50/5$ each, and the printed book will be available in a couple of weeks time in Orkney at £12.  Your can buy the ebook here, or if you don’t want the whole book, the scarf pattern here, and the shawl/throw pattern here.  (You don’t have to be a member of Ravelry to buy patterns there.)
