Glasgow Rose Stole
Inspired by the work of influential designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh, this rectangular shawl is worked in two pieces, then grafted together at the centre; a border is picked up along the entire edge and worked in the round, and finally a lace edging is knitted on perpendicularly.
If you like the rose motif but would prefer a triangular shawl, you might want to look at my Glasgow Rose shawl design.
