The "Mrs. Hunter" who originated this pattern was a member of the famous Hunter family of the Isle of Unst, the most northerly of the Shetland Islands. The Hunters began and developed the art of Shetland lace knitting, and have created lace shawls for the British royal family from the time of Queen Victoria to the present.
Note the close kinship between Mrs. Hunter's pattern and the Yarn-Over Cable, which undoubtedly was derived from it.
