There is something about a deep red. It is bold, beguiling, seductive, entrancing. With the Mary, Queen of Scots yarn colorway now you can add a bold statement to your knitwear wardrobe. I thought it would be fun to give you some suggestions to use your lovely new yarn with while you wait on your next arrival from the yarn club. I hope you find something you love. Be sure to tag me with #bmyknitwit. I would love to see what you guys make and feature you on my IG feed!
Fall In Love Shawl
Taken after a leafy design this is a perfect fall shawl to wear. The pattern can be worked up in any yarn weight.
Having a touch of wavy lace to this cowl I think it hints to the ocean waves Mary would have been used to seeing. I imagine this is a cowl she would have worn out riding or perhaps inspecting her army. Feminine in detail yet sturdy. This would be great if you received your yarn in the Warrior Mom base!
Mariabelle Texture Sampler Shawl
The different textures found in this shawl I think would be highlighted by Mary’s colorway. A perfect shawl to wear out to dinner!
Birchgrove Cowl Small
This cowl also highlights some pretty lacework mimicking what it’s like looking up at the sky on a birchgrove. A bit secretive and perhaps otherworldly, I imagine Mary and Francis stealing away for a kiss in a Birchgrove.
The lace work almost looks like three leaf clovers in this shawl pattern. It’s the the picot edging I think gives it the royal touch.
The beautiful Japanese lace that works up into a star at the crown of the hat would be displayed beautifully in this rich red colorway. Another option if you ordered Warrior Mom.
When you have to wear ball gowns you need something to help ward off the chill. You can wear this piece as a shawlette or cowl! A girl needs options, after all.
Another lightweight cowl with stitches meant to show off the beautiful yarn you are working with.
You will notice a lot of lacy or lace like patterns. Lace is so elegant and lady like, but I thought about well structured pieces too, perfect for a queen.
