I was recently made aware of an interesting looking flee that I had never heard of or seen before, called "The Jacobite."
I know of a water out on the Outer Hebrides which is known as Flora's Loch and was thinking that this pattern may be useful on a cast along with The Pretender!
However history tells us this combination may prove futile!
Seriously though I do like the look of this pattern and look forward to giving it a cast on the Machar Lochs of South Uist.
Heres my variation of The Jacobite!

Claret 14/0 sheer thread.
