Rusted Roof

This is one of my new pretty things: Rusted Roof Shawl, by Martha Wissing. It’s available for purchase here on Ravelry. Rusted Roof, not to be confused with one of the best bands ever, Rusted Root.┬áThe recipe for Rusted Root is a blend of rock, acoustic, world, and heavy percussives. The recipe for Rusted Roof is to take two highly contrasting worsted weight colorways and just set to knitting.

I knit mine in Berroco Ultra Alpaca in carrot and eggplant. Sometimes I do think I choose colors mostly to entertain my eyeballs while I knit, but I’ve actually worn this in public and gotten apparently sincere comments that folks like it.

Here’s another view.

The patterning on the edge is mosaic stitch a/k/a slip stitch. It’s super easy. A lot of bang for your knitting buck. I love the way the interior edge can be curled back to fashion a collar.

Well done Martha!
