    Rosalind features dropped stitches inside lozenge cables and is surprisingly simple to knit. 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.

    Sample shown in Hand Maiden Fine Yarn Bess [300yd/275m per 100g; 88% Merino, 12% Cashmere]; shown in size 21.5in/54.5cm on model with 21.5in/54.5cm circumference head.
