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.

Originally offered by elann.com as a free pattern. Visit international.elann.com to see currently available free patterns.

Over the years elann.com has offered a variety of free patterns to showcase elann brand yarns – this was one of them. As elann’s new site, international.elann.com, develops, many of these longtime favorite designs will be re-formatted and made available for purchase. This will be a time-consuming process, which we hope to accomplish by the end of 2015, so we ask for your patience. 

Throughout this process, on a rotating basis, we’ll be offering 6 free patterns per month at international.elann.com. They’ll be free for one month, and then subsequently available for purchase as .pdf downloads. We encourage you to visit international.elann.com often to see our latest offerings.
