High energy weather and ocean activity shape the tall, striated rock cliffs around Eshaness and shroud their feet in pools of swirling, white foam. This scarf or stole, worked from hem to center back in two pieces, makes use of simple stitches and color sequences to replicate one of Shetland’s most exciting landscapes. Work the colors as stated in the pattern or devise an alternate scheme to add a personal touch; this design lends itself to endless variations and is easily resized to suit one’s yarn supply and/or ambition.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
