The island of Colonsay lies in the Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland. Fifteen miles to the north lies the island of Mull; the eastern and southern horizons are bounded by the islands of Jura and Islay; and to the south west, just visible from a high point on a clear day, is the coast of Donegal in Ireland. To the west lies the Atlantic, with only the Du Hirteach lighthouse standing between Colonsay and Canada. Together with its semi-detatched neighbour Oransay, it forms an island group roughly ten miles long and two miles wide.

This design by Lisa Richardson is part of the Tranquil story of the Rowan Knitting & Crochet Magazine 58. Lisa designed a boxy jacket with a shawl collar and it is crocheted using Rowan Tweed and Fine Tweed. This jacket is worked with horizontal stripes. The vertical lines are crocheted over the mesh afterwards.
I saw this design at the H+H in Cologne, Germany and it immediately caught my eye. The subtle colours and the timeless pattern will make it a classic.
