This beautiful lace motif immediately had me envisioning delicate rose petals. Those found on the Eden Rose can range from an almost white pastel pink on the outer edges, to a brilliant pink centre. The powder pink yarn was just perfect for it. Wearing Eden Rose wrap, knit in this sumptuous Alpaca/Silk blend, feels just as soft and luxurious as I’m imagining being immersed in a thousand rose petals would be!

Eden Rose is a quick, fun and captivating knit while you watch it take shape and grow.

One size: 14” x 82”/35 x 208 cm

Yarn – Fingering weight: Approximately 915-1090 yards/837-997 m.

Shown in DROPS Baby Alpaca Silk (70% alpaca/30% silk, 183 yards/167 m per 1.76 oz./50 g skein) in colour 1306/Powder, 5 skeins.

The wrap has been designed for fingering weight, and although the sample is knit in what DROPS categorizes as a sport weight, their yarns usually tend to work up to a finer gauge. While gauge isn’t absolutely critical, note that a different gauge will affect the final dimensions, feel of the fabric and amount of yardage needed.

Gauge:
26 sts x 36 rows = 4”/10 cm (in stockinette stitch, after blocking)

Needles:
US 2.5/3 mm needles

Notions:
Stitch markers, tapestry needle.

Techniques used:
• Cable cast on
• Increasing/decreasing
• Lace
• Long-tail cast on

Construction:
Eden Rose wrap is knit from point to point with the same lace motif used throughout, making it easy to memorize as the repeats first increase and then decrease, giving the wrap its final shape. As well, it can easily be altered in length by simply adding or reducing pattern repeats through the centre section and in width by changing the number of repeats across, while also affecting the length.

Note: The pattern is not available in Spanish, nor has it been translated from Spanish.
