Ah, summer! The sweet scent of roses drifts on the wind, and in the garden, strawberries, glossy and ripe, wait to be picked. This is the time of warm evenings and long, lazy days. In 2016, the Rose Moon falls on June 20, right before the summer solstice.

Rose Moon is a top down, crescent shaped shawl with a simple twisted stitch body pattern, and an arching lace border pattern reminiscent of a rose arbour.
