(6) Name: 'Knitting : Vendanges

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Increase/decrease using M1R and k2tog.
  • Knit / purl
  • Working short rows
  • Bind off / cast on

Pattern Description:

Vendanges, the French word for grape harvesting in a vineyard, was inspired by my parent's vineyard and the beautiful scenery I have the chance to witness every year at this very special event. As this event takes place during the Fall, I always need to cover my shoulders as the evening sets in. This simple yet pretty shawl was inspired by such need, with just the right touch of feminine rusticity.

This design comes in two classic shapes and yarn weight. The triangular shape uses a heavier DK weight yarn and more yardage while the crescent shape uses a lighter sport weight yarn and less yardage.

The pleats in this design are shaped with short rows, and may constitute the perfect first short row project for the knitter wanting to try this essential technique.
