Perfect for chilly summer days or early autumn, Rosy makes for an extra layer of warmth while still keeping the summery feel. Worked in a light cotton blend, it will be lighter to wear; worked in an alpaca blend, it will give more warmth. The stripes make the process fun - work random striping, or follow the striping pattern I created for my first prototype (size M).

Rosy is worked top down, starting with shoulder saddles from which sts are picked up, and back and fronts are worked flat. After joining the front and back, the garment is worked in the round.
