Sophie’s Rose is an asymmetric triangle, knit from the small point to the sweeping ruffle.
I designed this for Anne Lindquist at For Yarn’s Sake, using two very special yarns. The main color is Sophie’s Rose, the semisolid brown with raspberry pink accents. MadelineTosh dyed this custom color in honor of Anne’s new granddaughter, Sophie.
The coordinating color is Knitted Wit‘s Madge, on her Merino Single Fingering base.
The theme is a garden trellis interspersed with rows of roses.
The big ruffle makes it really fun to wear.
The pattern is an exclusive through For Yarn’s Sake through 2014.

Errata: Gauge is listed as both 8 st/inch and 22 st/4 inches. Correct gauge is 22 st/4 inches over trellis st (which is the same as gauge over stockinette stitch), or 5.5 st/inch.
All slipped stitches are slipped as if to purl.
