The Rosa pattern is now live! Hip hip hooray!
Rosa is a small, elegant top down triangle shawlette with simple lace inserts, equally suitable for wear as a scarf or as an evening wrap. This is a gentle introduction to true lace, in which the yarn overs occur on both sides of the fabric. Choose a beautiful solid or semi solid light fingering weight yarn to best display the lace pattern, which has the look of paper cut outs. The Bluefaced Leicester yarn used for the sample is smooth and sturdy, but still soft on the skin. Merino is another good choice for a soft, wearable fabric. Finished with an easy vertical lace edging to mimic the look of fringe, this is a fast and fun lace project you’ll love to wear.
