Rose-gina



Pattern: Orangina
Source: Glampyre Knits
Yarn: 4 skeins of Rowan Cotton Glace
Yarn Source: Liberty
Needle: US2 & US3 24" Circulars
Size: XS (9 lace repeats)
Made for: Myself
Time taken: May 2007 - August 2007

Tada, I present to you my Rose-gina!

I am pretty pleased with it. Maybe it's just a tad too short and a tad too snug. But then cotton stretches so that should be fixed naturally soon.

I substituted Rowan 4 ply Cotton with Cotton Glace but I still knit with the same needle sizes. I cast on for 9 repeats to get the snug fit for me. Mattress stitch 1.5 of the lace repeats for the shoulder if you are interested to know.

This is a very simple lace pattern and I highly recommends it to all lace beginner. It's very very simple but yet so beautiful.

I have model shots of Beau. I just need to do something to blur out the face since my bf does not like to be on the web! So stay tuned!
