Rosewater: A quick to knit one skein shawl
Little did I know back in the summer of 2015 when I designed Rosewater, that it would become one of my most popular patterns.
Thousands of knitters around the world have knitted Rosewater, and many have made several. It’s one of those one skein shawl patterns that knitters keep coming back to again and again.
If you haven’t knitted Rosewater yet, I must warn you, it’s just a matter of time.
What makes Rosewater such a popular one skein shawl knitting pattern?
I don’t really know what the magic ingredient is that makes Rosewater so irresistible. Maybe it’s the combination of garter stitch and modern lace. Or maybe it’s because you get such gorgeous results with simple and effortless knitting.
And the fact that it’s a perfect project for those single skeins in your stash doesn’t hurt either. Pretty much every knitter has that special skein that’s just waiting for the perfect project.
What yarn to choose?
You can use your favourite fingering weight yarn for your Rosewater. Or try something new. I knitted mine with Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in one of my favourite colours, Calligraphy. And I’ve seen beautiful Rosewater shawls knitted with Holst Garn Supersoft, Manos del Uruguay Fino, The Fibre Co. Meadow and Hedgehog Fibres Sock, to name a few. All you need is one skein of fingering weight yarn!
But what if you want to make yours bigger?
The pattern includes instructions on how to make your Rosewater shawl bigger. So if you happen to have more than one skein of that special yarn, you can now use every single gram of it!
