Tin Roof - Rusted

I read about Pioneer on A Verb for Keeping Warm's blog, then read a glorious write up by Clara Parks on her excellent and informative weekly, Knitter's Review
I ordered a parcel, which arrived quickly and beautifully presented:

I chose the color, Bandana, a Madder-dyed shade of amazing depth.  
The yarn base was even better than I'd anticipated!  

I began to knit this pattern, something that my daughter Haley had worked out for me in a bulkier merino but set aside as not quite the right fit.

And before I knew it, I'd ordered two more skeins to make this 80+ inch scarf 
that I will love for a very long time.
The pattern is on Ravelry and on Craftsy, too.

The corrugation and color made me think of a tin roof - my next one will be wider and in a marvelous shade of grey or grey blue, I think.

I would highly recommend this amazing worsted weight yarn for any project, 
large or small.  
Take a peek on Ravelry to see what others have made - you will be so inspired.


  1. This is such a great pattern. I love the pleats and the similarity to those corrugated tin roofs I love. I'm thinking of knitting while listening to rain falling on a tin roof right now . . . ah!

    1. Perfect visualization. Thank you, and enjoy it all. ~N

  2. Beautiful pattern! Such a perfect cozy scarf. That's my handwriting on the note from Verb. I'm so happy to see and read about your beautiful creation! -Huelo

    1. Thank you so much, Huelo,
      I have to say that the personalized note was a stunning touch. I really appreciated it! ~N

  3. Looking forward to getting started on this scarf!
