Udal by Kate Davies - pattern kit

from 6.00

This beautiful pattern was conceived by Kate Davies for The Birlinn Yarn Company during a brisk, windy walk around the Udal peninsula in North Uist to the remains of a Neolithic wheelhouse. The pullover’s circular yoke references these ancient round structures and features a motif that is common in traditional Hebridean ganseys: the tree of life.
