Burnt Cape Guernsey Stole
The pebbles and limestone shale of the Burnt Cape Ecological Reserve at the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula in Newfoundland, Canada, remind me of purl bumps on a field of stockinette stitch leading to this design utilizing Scottish Guernsey patterns.
This stole is knit using Bare Naked Wools ‘Ghillie Sock’, a 100% Cheviot wool yarn. These sheep produce a finely-crimped, hard-wearing wool, perfect for outerwear and socks - and for keeping warm in the arctic conditions of the ecological reserves when visiting the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland.
