Like the wings (‘tiivad’) of a bird, this shawl has a texture that ruffles in the breeze. The knitted fringes on the shawl are inspired by the stripes and edge trim seen on many traditional mittens.

Tiivad is a stunning shawl pattern from Aleks Byrd, as part of her new book Traditions Revisited. A love letter to both Aleks’ heritage and knitting itself, Traditions Revisited is a collection of 19 beautifully crafted designs and hand drawn illustrations to guide readers through Aleks’ favourite traditional Estonian knitting techniques.

We were thrilled when Aleks asked to use Preseli for this stunning shawl pattern, and we've put together some yarn kits from the team to reflect how we'll be choosing the colours!

Aleks

Rich, leafy green Holly (MC) is elevated by Tuscany and Raspberry in the original colourways, chosen by Aleks for Tiivad.

Andy M

A nautical theme was Andy's inspiration behind this set, utilising Paphos (MC), Sunrise and Highland. (Highland was a requirement, as Andy M is a proud Scotsman!)

Andy T

Subtle and neutral, Andy chose Cinder (MC), Rigging and Lichen for a gentle, wearable option at odds with some of the bolder selections.

Emily

Emily chose Sunrise (MC), Hummingbird and Sycamore for this bright, joyful and sunny set.

Franki

Strong and subtle with strong pops of colour, Franki chose Kettle (MC), Koi and Gorse for her option.

Freya

Koi (MC) was always going to be front and centre in Freya's choice, beautifully offset by the calm and cooling Cinder and Cadet.

Jonny

Bold Blazer (MC) is the base for Jonny's set, and the combination of Dragonfly and Gorse brings a lightness and brightness to this strong navy blue.

Leonora

Joyful Orchard (MC) is offset by Blazer and Lichen in Leonora's kit, bringing depth and subtlety to this summery blossom base.

Sally

Delightfully tonal, Orchard (MC) is complimented by Wild Heather and Elderberry for this delightful purple pop.

Cardigan Bay

Catching the dappled light across the bay here in Cardigan, this kit is made up of Slate (MC), Dragonfly and Blazer

Summer Meadow

A summers morning across a wildflower meadow is captured by Sunrise (MC), Baked Crimson and Marmalade
