Dunedin – a beautiful crescent shaped shawl, designed by Lucy Hague. Lucy was asked to design a pattern exclusively for Wool Tribe, the magazine companion to the Edinburgh Yarn Festival which will be on sale from 7.00pm tonight (GMT) here .
For Dunedin, Lucy has used the Quinag base which is 100% Bluefaced Leicester wool, and the colour she has used is Stormy Seas which is dyed using a glazing technique i.e. it is one colour glazed over another, so each and every hank of this colourway is different, and the resulting colour is a mix of turquoise and blue. The pattern delicately features cables – a theme which is strong throughout many of Lucy’s designs.
I have plenty of stock of Stormy Seas in the Quinag base, but if you want an alternative it is also available in the Canisp base (merino/silk/cashmere) and the Reliable Sock Yarn base. And of course if blue isn’t your shade, there are many more shades to choose from.
Many thanks to Lucy for such a beautiful design which shows off the yarn so well, and to the Edinburgh Yarn Festival team (Jo and Mica) for choosing this design for the magazine.
