Rosalind features dropped stitches inside lozenge cables and is surprisingly simple to knit. Although it’s knit in 4ply, those drop stitches mean that it’s much quicker to knit, and you have all the fun of deliberately letting those stitches unravel!

Rosalind comes in a full 5 sizes, which means that should you wish to substitute the yarn, or should your gauge be different from the pattern, then you can easily knit another size in the pattern to get your desired fit.

Bei Rosalind werden im Inneren von Kaffeebohnenzöpfen Maschen fallengelassen, was viel einfacher ist als es klingt!

Obwohl diese Mütze in Sockenwollstärke gestrickt wird, geht es dank der Fallmaschen doch verhältnismäßig schnell − außerdem macht es mächtigen Spaß, die Fallmaschen loslaufen zu lassen und ihnen beim Aufräufeln zuzusehen!

Rosalind enthält Anweisungen für 5 verschiedene Größen, wodurch man bei Verwendung anderer Garnstärken bzw abweichender Maschenprobe leicht auf eine der anderen Größen ausweichen kann, um die gewünschte Passform zu erreichen.
