Anascrecca Shawl

The Euroasian Teal is a lovely little duck. It has a fabulous flash of colour just under its wing – where the colour name teal comes from. Anas Crecca is the scientific name for the Teal.

The main body of the shawl has a simple but effective slip stich pattern to give texture and allow the hand dyed yarn to excel. A short bright stripe of teal then gives way to a rich lace pattern in gently variegated yarn from Madelinetosh.  

The overall effect is a stunningly soft and gentle wrap that can be worn in a variety of ways. The Teal stripe adds a quirky quick flash of delight, just like the duck as it takes off.

I love wearing shawls and mainly use them as an over elaborate scarf. It works for me. I find they are ideal in centrally heated houses when a jumper is just too much but a little extra comfort and warmth is needed.
