Rogelio is all about elegance, featuring a dainty and easy-to-memorize lace pattern adorning the instep. To finish, choose the traditional twisted-rib cuff or add even more elegance with a dainty lace ruffle!
Rogelio features a dainty lace pattern repeated up the instep and is knit from the toe up, with a fleegle heel and either ribbing or a lacy ruffle at the cuff. Instructions for optional calf-shaping are also provided. This pattern looks best in solid, semi-solid, or tonal yarn.
Both charts and written instructions are provided.
A low-vision version of the pattern is also available. This version is written in 24 point sans serif font (Arial) in all black text. It has no italics. All of the directions are fully written out.
