The Holy Island of Lindisfarne is a tidal island off the northeast coast of England. It is also known just as Holy Island. It constitutes the civil parish of Holy Island in Northumberland. Holy Island has a recorded history from the 6th century. It was an important centre of Celtic Christianity under Saints Aidan of Lindisfarne, Cuthbert, Eadfrith of Lindisfarne and Eadberht of Lindisfarne. After Viking invasions and the Norman conquest of England a priory was reestablished. A small castle was built on the island in 1550.

This design by Marie Wallin is knitted using Rowan Fazed Tweed and Rowan Felted Tweed Aran. It shows a reverse fair-isle pattern on the sleeves and the bottom and top of the body. A centre panel of an outstanding fair-isle pattern is shown on front and back.

I love this design for its great fair-isle pattern and the on trend reverse fair-isle part. It will be on my needles for sure.
