Pattern Details

Although it’s knit in 4ply, those drop stitches mean that it’s much quicker to knit, and you have all the fun of deliberately letting those stitches unravel! Rosalind comes in a full 5 sizes, which means that should you wish to substitute the yarn, or should your gauge be different from the pattern, then you can easily knit another size in the pattern to get your desired fit.
