Houlland 2

It’s really good to see all your Houlland projects on Ravelry, there are a range of beautiful colours being made.

I have made another, this time in Ultra lace weight yarn from Jamieson’s of Shetland in colour eesit.  It’s lovely and soft as it is 50% wool and 50% lambswool.





The pattern Houlland is available in The Book of Haps by Kate Davies.

There are two KALs for projects from the book running at the moment (that I know of anyway), one in Jen Arnall-Culliford’s group and one in the KnitBritish group over on Ravelry.  I thought that would be a good thing to join in with and I have cast on another Houlland in jumper weight Shetland yarn, it will work in that weight but it will be slightly larger than the original. I am using yarn on the cone that I bought from a sale, there are no details about the origin or colour but I love it, and fancy a Houlland in this colour to wear myself.  The same evening I also cast on Theme and Variation from the book, using another cone of yarn I got at the sale; maybe I am being a bit ambitious as I already have several projects on the go at the moment, but I hope to get some knitting done over the summer holidays.


HAP-py Knitting!

  1. This is lovely, thanks for knitting up in a lighter color and weigh of yarn – the pattern really stands out here, although the grey was beautiful too. This will be the first Hap pattern I will knit from the collection. Love trees!!! Thanks.
