Wrapped In Jamie Square 10 – Hunting Story


His time as an outlaw, living rough and hunting in the Scottish woods helps Jamie to increase his ‘outdoor’ survival skills, his red hair a give-away for those who look out for him.


1742-ish to 1743 – Jamie is back from France and spends some time living rough, hunting in the woods and increasing his outdoor skills with a gang of other lads. 

He is still classified as an outlaw, which means while he spends time as a hunter, he is also hunted (by the English).

Designer's Thoughts

This square is about hunting, a hunter and a hunted.

The pattern represents different kinds of arrows – wide ones and narrow ones, the feathery ends of the arrows and the threads they represent. It takes a lot of arrows to practice hunting deer, cattle or other game. The aim is, of course, to land this one, perfect shot. 

I have chosen a mustard for the square in the storyteller colourway, respectively a rusty orange for the inside or border on other squares. Both colours refer to the leaves in a Scottish forest in autumn. The mustard colour is also a reference to the hides of stags, a hunter’s leather breaches and vest.

The soft mustard is a good colour for camouflage among the tree trunks, while the rusty orange of Jamie’s hair is a give away for those who are looking for the guy who is hunting their cattle or the English, who are still trying to hunt jamie down.
