Sometimes a little bit of pink is all that’s needed to bring a bit of joy to your day. In this case, Rosy Does It. This design combines stunning lace with easy garter stitch stripes. And while I made my version in three colors, you can, of course, also make it in only two or even one color. This design is also very flexible in sizing, making it very easy to adjust to your preferences; what’s not to love?!
Rosy Does It is a triangle shawl worked from the top-down in one piece, starting at the neck with a garter stitch tab. Written and charted instructions are included for the lace body of the shawl.
Pay what you want: (minimum €6.50)
