Levenwick is a top-down, compound raglan cardigan worked in Reverse Stockinette Stitch. The gentle curves of the well-known Shetland “Old Shale” motif accent the collar, front opening, and pocket. Levenwick is the name of a small settlement of houses in Shetland, smaller than even a tiny village. It was here, beside a beautiful crescent of white sand beach, that designer Gudrun Johnston was born.

We are excited to announce that the Danish version of this pattern is now available in print at woolspire.com
