With soft curves and beautiful lace, Rosewater is a stunning shawl you’ll want to knit again …and again …and again.

An inspiring and enjoyable knit, Rosewater looks more complex than it is. Worked from the top down, it knits up quickly and flies off the needles in no time.

The signature lace in this shawl is a unique combination of dropped stitches, eyelets and fishnet lace. Beautiful, versatile, and fully reversible, Rosewater is a joy to knit and wear. Wind your favourite yarn and enjoy each delicious stitch.

One skein of Madelinetosh Tosh Sock (100% merino wool; 361 m / 395 yds per skein). Shown in colour Calligraphy.

Or approximately 361 m / 395 yds of similar fingering weight yarn.

Size 4 mm / US 6 needles or size to obtain pattern gauge

This shawl is worked flat, but I recommend using 80-100 cm / 32-40 inch circular needles to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
