Burgundy, copper and fuchsia blend together to create this stunning Teasdale Rose scarf. Bordered with a leaf and petal trellis, this striped shawl is hand-knit in luscious merino and silk yarn. Petal soft and glowing in Autumn’s warm color palette, this shawl is sure to be a hit. Pair it with jeans or spice up a sedate business suit. Either way, it will be your go-to accessory for fall.
Comments on the project
Love, love, love how this Teasdale Rose scarf came out. My only wish is that it was larger. Now that I’ve made the pattern, I know how to make it so. I didn’t have enough of Helen’s burgundy to complete this scarf, so I custom-dyed a coppery-orange color to make stripes. This creates a stunning look for this pattern and doesn’t distract too much from the lace stitches.
I’m thrilled with how this all came together. It took a bit more work than I normally do, having to dye the yarn to match, but it was well worth it. There’s a tiny bit of yarn left and I’m contemplating knitting a matching beret, but we’ll see. There might not be enough yarn left-over. I do think I’ll dye up the bare Merino and silk I have in my stash in another color set, so I can make this pattern again. It was a fairly easy knit and went quickly after the border was knit.
