    1. hi Rita,

      Apologies for delay in responding (selling our property in NM 2013, cycling accident 2014, relocating to Midwest 2015 when not in the EU, etc.)

      The yarn is vintage, courtesy of Kerstin however, in the Orkneys there is a producer of angora that is close to the vintage quality. see: ww.orkneyangora.co.uk

      Kerstin designed a hat & mitts for me using the Orkney Angora which will appear in Nordic Knitting, which is when??? Just finishing British Isles Knitting which will have vintage and current knit patterns and will be released as eBook after circulating Beta.

      The colour pattern was designed by Kerstin Olesson, and must check the lovely Poems of Color book to see if it does include this pattern.

  3. There's a photo on page 57 of Poems of Color by Wendy Keele and shows it as the Star attributed to Kerstin Olsson. The pattern is not in the book. Cathy

  4. A new book that includes patterns is expected to be published next year. The new book will be written in English and will include patterns. See the announcement at the following link (the announcement is in Swedish):
