ROSE BED SHAWL TEST
Rose Bed Shawl is a 2-color shawl worked from the top-down with its body worked mainly in garter stitch short row wedges. The wedges get stacked slowly giving the shawl a pleasing crescent shape. Bobbles and mesh bands are worked in contrast color in between the wedges. A mostly mindless knit that turns into a stylish, drapey and light accessory in your wardrobe.
