the Inchgarvie shawl by Ysolda Teague uses one skein of Old Maiden Aunt Shetland 2ply laceweight to create a lightweight, large shawl. knitted mainly in garter stitch with sections of feather & fan and a knitted-on edging, this shawl combines traditional elements with a contemporary design.

the Bounnet hat by Anna Maltz uses a mini-skein pack of Old Maiden Aunt superwash merino 4ply to create a unique colourwork hat. although the hat uses five colours, only two are ever in use at a time with a third colour being slipped to create a densely textured knit with a quirky play on traditional colourwork.

the St. Andrews shawl by Kirsten Kapur uses two colours of Old Maiden Aunt superwash merino/cashmere/nylon 4ply and combines lace patterning, two-colour feather & fan, and tiny cables to create a beautifully intricate shawl with gorgeous drape.

the Wild Mountain Time mitts by Felicity Ford use four colours of Old Maiden Aunt shetland 4ply to create a vivid, modern interpretation of a traditional colourwork mitt. the stylised floral design works well in many different colour combinations.

the Blashy socks by Rachel Coopey use one skein of Old Maiden Aunt superwash merino/nylon/stellina to create a pair of cable and lace socks whose asymmetrical patterning swirls down the leg and over the foot.
