The lovely Rosina in Rossini's opera The Barber of Seville is the object of desire and intrigue between two men who struggle to gain her hand. In this opera of subterfuge and disguises, Rosina remains the central character, radiating beauty and independent spirit.
With this feminine wrap, she portrays her different sides. It is a piece that can be worn in different ways.
Starting from a Provisional Cast-On, it is worked in one lace stitch pattern which then seamlessly transforms into another one. Wear this wrap with either side showing to the front. A set of double ruffles join and set off the wrap, giving it a flirtatious finish.
