A pretty, lightweight square shawl in two sizes (S/L) for baby, worked in allover rosebud patterns from the center out in the round. The eyelet motifs used throughout are easy to work with all-knit rest rows in between. Pretty as a picture, it is also practical, when knit up in soft, machine washable fingering yarn.
Substituting yarn and/or needles will result in an overall variation in size.
