"Roses" is a light contemporary lace crescent inspired by the warm summery colors of roses.

It's an easy knit, growing from a single stitch, featuring a pointed border along the top edge and finishing with a knitted-on lace border.


The crescent is knit on 4mm/US6 needles with 710yds/650m of Renaissance Dyeing naturally-dyed worsted-spun Merinos d’Arles yarn from sheep that graze the slopes of the French Alps.

A Roses kit is available here from Renaissance dyeing. The total yardage of the kit is 200g/830yds/760m. I used about 80% of the yarn - the pdf includes a suggestion for using up all the yarn to make a deeper shawl.


The crescent is approximately 21.5in/55cm deep by 47.25in/120cm wide; gauge is approximately 16sts and 24 rows = 4in/10cm in lace pattern


The pdf contains charts and instructions. English and French versions of the pdf are available.
