Rose Gold is the fifth pattern in the Metalwork collection.


Draped on the shoulders or scrunched around the neck, Rose Gold is an elegant accessory. This simple crescent of striking texture is worked from the top, and finished with an applied garter-and-picot edging.

The pattern is written for two weights of yarn—a smaller DK weight shawl, and a larger fingering weight version. The larger version will be lighter, with a more open, drapey fabric.
