Regency Valentine Scarf


My love is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June:
My love is like the melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.
As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in love am I:
And I will love thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry.

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun:
And I will love thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.
And fare thee weel, my only love,
And fare thee weel a while!
And I will come again, my love,
Thou’ it were ten thousand mile.
-Robert Burn

For your mother, your daughter, your dear companion, for yourself! Just in time for Valentine’s Day, this design, featuring sprays of posies, is from a Regency needlework pattern dated 1822. Warm the cockles of your heart, or a loved one’s, with this easy double knit scarf. Use up to date colors, like bright pink and black, or soft muted Regency tones, like coral and moss green, for a romantic accent that chases away midwinter’s chill with the warmth of friendship.

This came out just as I had hoped it would – bright, to defy the cold drear of midwinter – and so pretty and romantic. I’ve put it up for sale on Ravelry, Etsy and Craftsy.

Next week: geeky hats! Want a hint? RAWR!
