Celebrate Burns Night with these Scottish patterns
It’s January 25th again, which can only mean one thing: time to whip up your favourite haggis recipe, pour a wee dram and tune up the ol’ bagpipes, it’s Burns Night!
On this date each year, people in Scotland and around the UK celebrate the life of poet Robert Burns, a Scottish poet perhaps best known worldwide for penning Auld Lang Syne, the classic New Years Eve singalong. In honor of Burns Night, we thought we’d take a look at some great Scottish patterns from our community.
Inspired by the national flower of Scotland, the thistle, this scarf’s beautiful lace pattern is a great subtle tip of the tam o’ shanter. Designers Tin Can Knits are always a great source for inspiring patterns!
If I had a dream jumper, this would be it. Maybe it’s the smile on his face, or the ale in his hand, but something tells me that this fella feels good wearing this. The cables are incredible, as is the Cascade Ecological wool that it is knitted in. Cheers mate!
The thistle flower is makes for a great tea cosy, especially if you have some extra Stylecraft Eskimo DK yarn lying around that you don’t know what to do with! TeaCosyFolk have a ton of awesome patterns to keep your tea warm, but this is my favorite for Burns Night.
Any Scottish patterns that you think would be great inspiration on Burns Night? Link to them in the comments and rack up those “favorites!”
