Master the stranded colorwork technique and learn to knit the official pattern of Shetland Wool Week 2018 – an event held annually in Scotland’s Shetland Islands, celebrating its native wool and associated crafts. This year’s design was created by Shetland’s own darling of knitwear design Elizabeth Johnston. The Merrie Dancers Toorie uses four colors combined to great effect within a simple, easy to memorize Fair Isle pattern. The perfect project for those new to stranded color knitting!
