Nestled in the nooks and cranny of rocky outcrops and streams, protected from the harsh winds and the foraging sheep of the Hebridean Isles you sometimes find ferns in places where you think nothing will grow.
Meg writes this about her design. “This wrap reflects the shapes and forms of ferns with the peppercorn bobbles echoing the seeds you find on the underside of the leaves. For me, there is something special about a fern, the way it unfurls seems to speak of hope, life, and new beginnings.”
It makes a beautiful and generously sized wrap with gorgeous texture and a simple and yet eye catching lace design. The pattern is both fully written out and charted.
One size – Measurements are approximate and are given at widest points, after blocking.
Finished length A: 140 cm / 55 in
Finished width B: 30 cm / 11.75 in
These are just approximations. Total yarn usage will depend on the yarn, your personal gauge, and any modifications you may make.
We are suggesting our Cheviot Marsh 4ply which is a lovely bouncy woollen spun yarn with great stitch definition and two skeins will make a lovely wrap.
