The lace is one of my favourite old Shetland patterns “print o’ the wave’ on the body with tiny gunmetal beads knitted in the fronds. Belle sleeves made in the old Shetland ‘birds eye’ pattern with beaded wave pattern at elbow. Tiny magenta beads in blue linen thread around waste and cuffs. Again body and sleeves knitted round to give a seamless lace. Inspired by Shetland nature.
