Story

Alba is the Gaelic for Scotland, and as a native Gaelic speaker I wanted to pay tribute to the Gàidhealtachd – the region where the language is spoken.

Key patterns were a favourite of Pictish stonemasons. I saw this one on the Nigg Stone in NE Scotland and transcribed it into a charted knitting pattern in 1990. The regular geometry of the key pattern makes this an easy stranded project, while the tones and shades of Hebridean 2 Ply give it a vibrancy worthy of its name. This is a garment to be worn with pride.
