This is a beautiful, all-over Razor Shell Lace sweater with seamless construction. Razor Shell Lace is a well-known, traditional Shetland technique and has been used with great effect in this pattern. 

Maywick, designed by Gudrun Johnston, is worked in one piece from the bottom up and requires the knitter to keep the lace pattern and stripe sequence correct during the shaping of the upper body.

Please note you will need to purchase the The Shetland Trader Book 3: Heritage separately in order to get the pattern. The purchase of the kit is for yarn and project bag only.

Select from the drop down menu which size and colourway option you would like. Be sure to confirm that you have selected the correct size and colourway before you complete the checkout process.
