This circular shawl is made up of lace rose buds bordered by simple leaves and an eyelet fence. It is inspired by all the beautiful rose bushes that start budding out at this time of year. The construction is done in the round with a stockinette stitch background.

Size: Approximately 60" wide across. The shawl can easily be made larger by adding more repeats of the rose buds or leaves. Figure about 2 extra balls of yarn per additional repeat.
