Roza is the Russian word for rose.
Roza is an airy lace shawl/wrap featuring a beautiful flower blooms stitch pattern. Rose flowers and leaves evoke feelings of spring and summer, but this shawl would make a great accessory for any time of the year. The shawl is seamless and knitted from the provisional cast on in the middle to the edge in both directions. The joining row designed to have no offset in the pattern flow. The edges are finished by a delicate border with a picot bind off.
The sample shawl after blocking measures 210cm (83 inches) long and 47cm (18 inches) wide. You can easily make your shawl bigger or smaller by changing the number of repeats.
The gauge of one lace pattern repeat of 17 sts x 24 rows after blocking measures 9.5cm x 15cm (3.7 inches x 5.9 inches).
The sample shawl was knitted with 1 skein of Tussah Silk by DyeForYarn (Fingering / 4 ply, 100% Silk, 875 yards / 200 grams). Colorway: Rose coral lying on the shore OOAK.
