Beautiful Projects – Tweed

Snow arrived in Scotland yesterday and has as reaching for our wool sweaters, hats, mitts, socks so we can wear them all at the same time. One of my head’s favourites today is the Solas hat from Knitworthy 3 which I knitted up in an amazing navy blue tweed, so I thought I’d share some other tweedy projects that are hopefully keeping their recipients as warm as I am!

To start with, a tweedy pair of Inglis Mitts knit by debkmsb. Working cables in darker colours can be tricky, so I love how the tweed flecks in the yarn help make the cables pop. 

The Snapdragon Tam is one of my favourite hats to knit, with a really fun and interesting cable pattern that decreases towards the crown beautifully. This gorgeous tweedy version was knit by GreyFrog

Helcaa knit her Strokkur using Rowan Felted Tweed for the main and natural colours, and a skein of striping Noro Kureyon as a contrast. So lovely!

Tweed often isn’t the first yarn you reach for when casting on a shawl, but this Follow Your Arrow 2 by HipHipBarbaKnit (barbaknit on instagram) is absolutely gorgeous.

The wearer of this hat is going to feel like their head is getting a woolly hug, perfect for the snowy weather lots of knitters are enjoying at the moment. This Cúram was knit by Inghelhoe
