Looking at the blog article list, I realised I did not introduced my lastest two shawl designs to you!
Evolving from a little spring sprout to full-grown foliage over the knitting, the Jeune Pousse shawl will wrap you and keep you warm and cosy throughout the cold winter months and allow you to bloom again when the Spring comes back.
The Jeune Pousse shawl has been created in collaboration with Lanae Tricot, for the one-year anniversary of this lovely new shop located in Grenoble. We wanted a BIG shawl as we both love to wrap in our shawls. And something simple but catchy.
Well, brioche stitch is definitively catchy! But sometimes I find it too overwhelming and too “thick” or “heavy” (in lack for a better word to describe it). Mix it with a simple lace border and all your problems fade away!
This asymmetrical triangle shawl is worked sideways. Starting from the point, its rather steep increase rate allows the shawl to drastically grow while working through the different sections. It features two simple brioche stitch patterns and a large but easy-to-remember lace border.
