Ruth’s Tiger Lily

I want to share with you a wonderful photo I recently received from a very talented customer:

That’s Ruth modeling her green version of my old Tiger Lily Jacket design.  Isn’t her knitting just beautiful?!  And I love those Falk greens together; they work so nicely with the floral motifs in Tiger Lily.

If you have the Tiger Lily pattern (printed pattern or kit available through above link; also available now as a PDF through Ravelry) the Dale of Norway Falk color substitutions for this green colorway are:

A = Spring green / moss green #9133

B = Natural #0020

C = Dark Olive #8972

D = Citron #9725

I did my original Tiger Lily Jacket, years ago, in Heilo, reflecting the orange and rust shades of the Tiger Lilies in my yard:

The Original

Not everyone wears a whole lot of orange.  Not every Heilo shade stays around forever, either.  So, whether by choice or lack thereof, quite a few different, yet lovely, Tiger Lily colorways have been knit up over the years.

So what colors would you like in your Tiger Lily?
