The Burgandy Shawl

Burgandy is my favorite color to wear. It looks really great against my skin tone in any season so I tend to gravitate toward it. So when I “accidentally” bought too much yarn for my Rosina Pullover I knew I would get to create a couple of great burgundy pieces.

Here is the latest item off my needles the Burgandy Shawl.

This shawl is a triangle shawl that can be worn around the neck like a bandana or over the shoulders as a shawl. I used Cascade 220 in Burgundy and the accent stripe is one of my favorites Knitting Fever’s Painted Desert in Brick. I modeled this shawl after the Dovetail Wrap from Purl Soho. I added an eyelet border and also an eyelet row every 12 rows. In addition to the mesh panel, I adorned the edge with gold beads. The beading is not as prominent as I would have liked, but I think it adds a delicate touch.

FO: Cool Cowl

This yarn was an impulse buy at my LYS. I just had to have these colors on my needles and the yarn was oh so soft. The price made it a safe gamble. Every if I didn’t like working with the yarn, my financial loss would have been minimal. 


Lucky for me this yarn was a-okay. I really enjoyed how the yarn worked into pretty even stripes. No cool pooling here! Overall, this cowl makes for a great accessory to jazz up any outfit. Plus the chunky yarn make for a quick knit.
