Rosa is an elegant top down triangle shawl 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. 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. Rosa offers instructions for two sizes, a small scarf sized shawlette for casual wear, and a large shawl sized wrap.

Small: 50 inches wide, 20 inches long (Shown in red)
