Frost can create such wonderful patterns: delicate branched patterns of fern frost on windows or tiny white ice crystals on leaves, grass and wires. The Frosty Rosebuds shawl pattern is inspired by frost bitten rose buds in late autumn, when some of the petals turn brown and wrinkled and some petals are still colourful. At the coldest time in the morning, when the sun is rising, all world seems to be covered by fragile white crystals. But the most beautiful is frost on the tips of rose petals.

The shawl is knitted in one piece. The pattern is easily adaptable in width and length. The lace ribbon pattern between rosebuds needs more attention as the pattern is worked on wrong side rows as well.

The shawl can be knitted up in a variety of yarns from cobweb to light fingering weight. Choose natural wool, silk, linen or cotton yarn which blocks nicely.

Depending on the desired size of shawl, thickness of yarn and tension of knitting, about 50 – 200 grams / 1.75 – 7 oz of yarn should be calculated for the shawl.

The needle size depends on your chosen yarn and the tension of your knitting. The usual needle size is 2.75 – 3.5 mm / US 2 – 4 and 1 – 2 sizes larger for cast on / bind off. The knitted fabric must be delicate and loose.
