One of the delights of a walk along a Hebridean beach is to guess which birds have visited by the innummerable trails of footprints left behind in the wind-waved sand. I created the impressionistic pattern for Birdsfoot as a homage to the myriad winged visitors that grace the shoreline at the foot of my croft, both those that are resident all year and those that visit from all points north and south, such as the indefatigable Arctic Terns who travel up to twenty thousand miles each year on their journeys to and from the Antarctic in their quest for eternal daylight.

I chose to make the scarf in the Spindrift shade, with its evocation of the tiny fragments of colourful shells that make up our sandy Hebridean beaches, but of course, it will look every bit as beautiful in any of the 2 Ply shades. The pattern repeat is small in scale and so it very easy to memorize and knit.
