Rachael Cook, owner of Sherwood Yarn, asked me to collaborate with her on a crocheted project using one of her gorgeous yarns. She generously provided the yarn for this design and let me choose the yarn type and the colorway. I chose her Falkland Fine Merino Laceweight in the Greendale colorway. The yarn is so soft and so wonderful to crochet with, and Rachael dyed it to perfection. So many beautiful subtleties of green in it. I had fun with each stitch I made.

Rowena is a scalene triangle worked from a starting point with just 2 chains. It gradually increases in length and width, ending with a wide, ornate edging. Along the way, there are ornamental rows to keep your interest while crocheting.
