Welcome to Bakka design where original Scottish tapestry kits are available.
The kits concept was evolved during our stay in a remote part of the West Isles of Mainland Shetland. These kits are influenced by the rich tradition of patterned knitwear, the variety of natural shaded wool and the brightly coloured yarn that is grown and spun in Shetland.
I hope you have as much enjoyment stitching these kits as I had in designing them. THE TAPESTRIES
These tapestries kits are produced using 100% pure Shetland wool and Fair Isle patterns. The designs are traditional and contemporary. All kits use unprinted pure cotton interlock canvas. Each design lists the number of holes to the inch canvas along with measurements of the tapestry size. Each kit is complete with:
o CANVAS UN-PRINTED
o COLOUR CHART
o PURE SHETLAND WOOL
The tapestry kits are provided with enough wool to complete the design in continental stitch or half-cross stitch. Instructions are provided. FAIR ISLE PATTERNS As with traditional Fair Isle knitting only two colours of yarn are used in each row and not more than five stitches worked before there is a colour change, this avoids large loops at the back of the work. This stranding provides the great warmth in the renowned Shetland knitwear. CHARTS The designs are worked coloured charts, each square represents one stitch and colour, one row equals a line on the chart.
The approximate finished sizes of the bookmarks are 20 cm x 4.5
cm. They are worked in half-cross stitch on 14 holes per inch canvas. These kits are provided with a fabric material for
backing the bookmark and extra wool to make a tassel to attach to the bottom of the bookmark – instructions supplied.
Each kit comes complete with:
needle, plain canvas, colour chart, pure Shetland wool and instructions.
Cost: £6.00 (inclusive of postage within UK) - for non UK destinations
