A Load of Old Shale

This was an easy knit. This is a free pattern from Ravely  "Larch, by Tinks and Frogs Rue, from tinksandfrogs

Old Shale is a classic Shetland stitch.  The only difficulty encountered in this pattern was the increase in pattern repeat but once I realized where I was going wrong it all fell into place nicely.I like the juxtaposition of these colours and the wool is lovely and soft 100% Merino (Cygnet Superwash DK)

I have knitted this for my cousin whose 40th birthday has just gone.  She may need it as she and her partner have just returned from Antigua on a celebratory trip.
