Caledonia gets its name from the old Roman word for Scotland. The Argyle cabled diamond and twisted stitch pattern with the textured pattern conjures up the spirit of the Scotland highlands. The modern shape of the jumper creates a garment that will look at home in the wild highlands as well as in the trendy city.

About Caledonia: slightly cropped jumper with set in sleeves; knitted in DK weight yarn; worked flat in pieces: back, front and two sleeves (from the ribbed bottom edging up). Neckband is picked up from the neck cast-off edge and knitted in the round. Lower part of the garment and sleeves has an Argyle diamond pattern constructed from a cable and twisted stitch pattern against a background of reverse stocking stitch; the upper parts have a textured moss stitch pattern. The cable pattern can be worked from a chart or from written instructions as you prefer.

The pin badge was delivered very quickly, and the quality of the badge is excellent. I pinned it onto the tassel of my bag, and the metal clasp is so secure: the badge remains securely pinned on. Two sachets of herbal tea were enclosed with my order, which I enjoyed. I'm extremely happy with my order, and I'll definitely buy again from With CherriesonTopToo.😊😊😊

Love it it... love it... it is me... a Nubian Queen. I would highly recommend purchasing this item... to adorn on a coat, blazer, suit, or just any thing you want to show how proud you are of being a Nubian....

I like this pin badge so much that I just had to buy another 3! Once again, delivery was prompt, and my order was beautifully packaged, with a lovely note from the seller thanking me for buying from their shop. Again, I received an appreciated sachet of herbal tea. All in all, I'm very happy with my order and the thoughtfulness of the shop owner, Sylvia.😄😄😄

This is so wonderful. I am so glad I ordered two - one for me and one to give away! It is well-made - the finish is beautiful. My two pins are good quality, shipped in good time and arrived in a reasonable amount of time.
