Crugga Riggies

Part of my Hentilagets project that aimed to honour the women who created the Shetland Lace patterns while also running the crofts. I used patterns that had names linked to the Shetland crofting environment.

A fundamental stitch in Shetland Lace knitting. You can distinguish a Shetland made shawl or hap from one made elsewhere by the fact that it is made using riggies. Much faster than purling every second row, Shetlanders used garter stitch.
