A slightly different take on lace for Needles ‘n Purls with this Marine blue Holden scarf made from a fingering weight Tweed yarn. Thicker than my usual lace-knit scarves to help ward off winter chills, this lovely tweed scarf will accent any wardrobe item. Wear it with jeans or your favorite tweed suit, either way, you’ll look terrific.
I originally bought this yarn from Knit Picks thinking to make socks out of it but when it arrived, I thought it too pretty to be just socks. The yarn is flecked with little tufts of Donegal tweed which gives it a unique look. I’m not a big fan of using fingering weight yarns for lace items, but this one made the cut and seemed a perfect fit for the Holden pattern. I knit it slightly smaller than the pattern called for because I wanted a scarf instead of a shawl. I love how this one came out. I’m tempted to keep it for myself.
