(6) Name: 'Knitting : Dolcetto

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cable cast-on, increasing, decreasing, working intermediate lace from chart or written instructions

Pattern Description:

Dolcetto (dole-CHEH-toh) is an early-ripening grape, grown in the Northwest area of Piedmont, Italy. It pro-duces wines suitable for everyday drinking that are soft, fruity and ready-to-drink when released. The Italian word dolcetto means "little sweet one", but Dolcetto wines are nearly always dry.

As a shawlette, Dolcetto is, indeed, a little sweet one. Knitted in one piece, from the neck down in stockinette with a double leaf spine, it is a perfect pairing for that special skein of sock yarn. The shawlette is finished with a double leaf edge that flows from the body of the shawl. Wear it as a shawl or a sassy scarf and you?ll be ready to sit and sip under an Italian sunset.
