Wild roses is an e-book of four patterns: a cardigan, a cowl, a hat and fingerless mitts with stranded colorwork featuring delicate branches and flowers.

Included are some tips on colorwork and fair isle and a tutorial on how to use Jenny’s cast on as a provisional cast on in a separate pdf: Wild rose tips.

Wild rose hat is worked bottom up starting with Jenny’s magic cast on used as as a provisional cast on to work the double brim. It comes in three sizes: small, medium and large. The sample is the medium size. It is perfect to work up some little rests. I used three different green tints for the flowers blending them together to get a smooth transition. The colorwork is charted only.
