cabbage rose

I'm trying to rescue my biggest mistake ~ starting the huge triangle shawl from Greetings from Knit Cafe in the wrong yarn. Not aran weight or bulky, but 4-ply. 4-ply king cole merino in a biscuit colour. I started this a few years ago when I was just getting back into knitting. By the time I had 400 stitches on the needles it should have been a huge blanket, but unfortunatley my shawl measured only 18" deep and 35" wide along the bottom edge. I hadn't the heart to carry on, so cast off. Ever since I've been trying to think of something to make with it, to make it useful, such as tote or cushion cover. In the meantime, I thought I might add some blue cabbage roses, using some rowan tapestry from my stash, in duplicate stitch.

Does it look like a rose?
