Knitting With Marsala

Marsala, Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year, is already finding its way onto Ravelry. Here are some popular designs knit in pretty hues of Marsala:

1 Dottie Pullover
2 Declan’s Hat
3 hogwart’s Express
4 Water for the elephants
5 Ritalin Cowl

I love the way some of these designs have combined other colors with Marsala. In particular, I like the pinks and golds and blues in the Dottie Pullover but, oh!, that Ritalin Cowl!!! I just want to go buy that yarn and start knitting it right away!!! I love that gold tone with the Marsala hues. The yarn is Fibre Company Acadia in Blackberry, Wild Onion, Amber (which Seems to be discontinued) and Kelp. And Water for the elephants has a coordinating color with a cream/pale-gold tint to it as well.
Have you thought about knitting with a Marsala hue this year? What colors do you think would complement or accent Marsala? Share here!
