Some days we want a statement piece and some days we want the staple. Roseum is that staple. The symmetrical twin to Twinleaf, Roseum is a rectangle accentuated with balanced short row stripes. Incorporating the foundations of knit and purl with a few knitterly manipulations of provisional cast on and icord edging (I can’t resist them!) it is not out of reach for an adventurous beginner knitter.
I can see myself wearing this sample throughout the warmer months then adding another one in more saturated colors when it’s cooler.
