As described by the designer: ‘Teresa Rose is a richly textured, top-down triangular lace shawl with a modern, geometric pattern of twisted stitches that pop out in relief on a reverse stockinette background. A pretty lace edge adorns the top of the wingspan. A dramatic scalloped border with garter ridges atop centered double decreases complements the shawl body by adding textural interest.
The size is very easy to customize either by changing the number of Chart 2 repeats worked, by using a different yarn weight, or both. Worked at the pattern size pictured here at 7 repeats of Chart 2, my sample used about 675 yards of the Dragon Sock yarn (Mermaid colorway)on US 4 needles and measures 64 x 30 relaxed after blocking.’
