I designed Returning during a wild storm. I was inspired by the heritage and beauty of the traditional hap shawls of the Shetland Island. I wanted to design something that was rustic, resilient but still delicate and beautiful. I really adore what came out of the process and I hope you do to.
* Minimum – three 50 g skeins of Gelisk Tweed, Isager Strik Tweed or other rustic or tweedy single ply yarn
with approximate ratio of 200 yds (180 m) / 50 g
(heavy fingering/fine sport).
* US7 (4.5 mm) 40 in (100 cm) circular needles, or
needles required to reach gauge.
* Optional: US8 (5.0 mm), or needles one size
larger than that required for gauge.
* Regular and locking stitch markers.
In stockinette, unblocked: 21 – 23 st / 4 in (10 cm). A variation in gauge of up to 0.5 sts/in is fine for this pattern. You will want a light and airy gauge that provides good drape and shows off the lace work.
