Twartree Knitting Pattern


Pattern Description

Twartree is a hexagonal colour piece which can be used as a brooch, a coaster, hair decoration, or joined to make a bigger piece, for example a shoulder wrap. It started as a last minute entry to Cunningsburgh Show in 2016 (I had more entries than I had finished pieces so had to knit something quickly), then became a piece for a ‘swatching with a purpose’ workshop, and finally a larger wrap which attracted interest when I wore it at Edinburgh Yarn Festival. It is useful for using up small amounts of yarn, and for experimenting with colour.

The Shetland dialect for a few (or one or two) is twartree and I thought it an appropriate name as only twartree colours are needed and once you’ve knitted one you will probably want to knit twartree more.


Point to point length is approximately 9cm or 10cm, depending on needle size

Materials Required

Very small quantities of jumperweight yarn. Each hexagon weighs approximately 3g.
