Arctic Land

Arctic Land is the third of the three Arctic Aura haps that I designed in 2015. It presents the largest variety of patterns out of all the three Arctic Aura haps. This piece is all white and off-white, similarly to a snowy, sparkling northern land with some shady hills, where only water and air can bring other colours to meet the land.

construction Built from inside to the outside. Its centre square is knitted diagonally back and forth in a mixture of garter and stocking stitch, and Cat’s Paw lace motifs. Based on the square is a border made in the round with my version of traditional Shetland diamonds. The edging with waves, nupps and short spikes is made perpendicular to the border. This hap requires blocking.
