Located on Canada's north-west coast, Desolation Sound is a wild and rugged place. Winter gales give way to brief summers, and the windswept landscape has little arable land. The European settlers on this remote coast did not let the elements stop them from carving out gardens to plant apples and roses.
These foreign seeds were coaxed to flower and fruit among the moss, ferns and native berries of the rain coast. Most of these remote homesteads have been abandoned and reclaimed by the wild, but in a forgotten garden you may still find a hardy rose entwined around an arbutus tree or sprawling untended in a sunny glade.
The beauty of Rosebud is it can be knit in any weight of yarn your favor so lace, sock or DK. To alter the size of your shawl knit more or less pattern repeats. The sample has been knit in a DK weight knitting yarn.
Rosebud is also included in Tin Can Knits' book Pacific Knits.
