A collection of elegant rose inspired designs including 3 styles of scarves and 2 lengths of hand/arm warmers. The Elegant Rose collection is a great addition to any wardrobe and can be made with beautiful neutrals as shown or add colour with the base one colour and the flowers and leaves another. See more information or to purchase on my Etsy store. Etsy store: www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com
For the Elegant Rose Collection I used beautiful yarn from Sweetgeorgia Yarns in the worsted weight yarn. Most other worsted weight yarns will work for this design. Try a hand painted effect with solid coloured roses to pop the floral accent or a beautiful neutral colour as shown for an elegant touch. The inspiration for these designs is a walk through a rose garden enjoying a beautiful warm day and to keep these memories near to warm you on the colder days of winter. The design on the base of the pieces is inspired by the stone tracery of Gothic Architecture of the past on beautiful cathedrals and buildings. These buildings were often embellished with beautiful stone tracery of leaves, flowers and vines. I love adding an architectural essence to my designs.

Thank you very much Lisa for this amazing blog post on my designs. I really appreciate all you have done to help me and your wonderfully kind comments. You are also a great designer and I can’t wait to see your new hand painted yarns you have been working on. Thank you so much for being so kind. 🙂 See Lisa’s blog post here:
If you love knit and crochet accessories that are both beautiful and practical, you really should take a look at ValerieBaberDesigns. Since 2012, her designs on Etsy have really stood out as both …
The Elegant Rose Scarf pattern can be made in a solid colour or in a two toned colour way shown here. I used the Saltair and the Betwitched colours by Sweetgeorgia Yarns (www.sweetgeorgiayarns.com) which you can also purchase on either of my sites above. I have more yarn colours that I am showing so if you have a particular colour choice message me and I can show you what I have in stock. I also sell them on Ravelry at www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/elegant-rose-scarf
Hand warmers are also available in pattern or finished garments. I will be adding a shorter version soon.
A rose of a day designing a new sculptured scarf that will be available with or without the rose brooch. On weekends I love to leave time to just create with yarn and try new ideas or refresh old ones. This is my creative time where I concentrate on trying something new. My goal and inspiration was to design an off spring of the Rose Onie Scarf that was chunkier perfect for our cold winters, yet elegant and sculptural. A piece you could wear with the rose brooch that would add a more elegant touch with a victorian feel to the design as well wear without the brooch for a more contemporary feel. Once again I have used a lovely soft merino wool in this design. You can see more on the links below as well as purchase.
The Sculptured Elegance Scarf can be worn in many different styles as shown in the pictures above. It was also a ducky sort of day while taking photos of this newest design. We spent some time just admiring this group of ducks and their wonderful collection of off spring, just as the new Sculptured Elegance Rose Scarf.
Off I go to be inspired by more Architecture this week with more new designs coming soon. Enjoy your day!
