Rose Trellis is a lovely lace cowl available in both medium & large sizes. Designed to be worn draped luxuriously once, twice, or even three times about the neck, Rose Trellis envelopes the wearer in a warm cloud of delicate lace. Knit in a fingering weight wool, it’s the perfect blend of warm & cozy with elegant style. An entertaining knit involving two different lace stitch patterns, Rose Trellis is worked horizontally in the round. While this does result in a large stitch count, it provides a continuous loop of scrumptious lace with no seaming or grafting. Its the perfect project for any knitter who enjoys lace!
