Hattie Yoke by Ella Gordon

Hattie Yoke

At the end of last year SWW invited Ella to come along and take a closer look at some of the items in the Shetland Museum textile collection, in the hope that something might pique her interest and transform into something of her own.

She was drawn to a bold short-sleeved jumper from the 1950s by Shetlander Harriet Stout. It featured a Fair Isle panel and a back button band. Ella incorporated elements of it into a Fair Isle yoke, but made sure to centre the motifs so it can be worn either way.

This a cropped jumper with no body shaping, but there are alternative instructions if you’d like a more tailored shape.
