Wee House Brooch and Key Ring


Looking out across a loch, surrounded by mountains is a little croft house with a red roof. This knitting pattern was inspired by that house which is located on the Applecross Peninsular, West Coast of Scotland.

Knitted on straight needles with sewn on embellishments. The brooch and key rings are similar in design but constructed slightly differently. Detailed instructions with photo's are given for both.

This PDF Pattern will be available to download immediately after purchase.
