My friend spent some time in the Shetland Islands and brought back some wool so that I could knit her a sweater. She discovered, while talking with the people at Jamieson and Smith, that originally there were few dyed colours and those that were dyed where rather vibrant and basic. She, therefore, bought some old colours and we came up with this pattern. It was knit with Jamieson and Smith jumper weight with 3.0 needles. It is a cardigan and I just cut up the steek without securing it. I used an Asplund border on the bottom of the body and the sleeves. It fits her well and she likes it but declined to model it for a picture. Because it is so bright, I have caught glimpses of her at a mall and at a concert. It certainly stands out in a crowd.
