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. The 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!
