PDF PATTERN "Renaicendres" shawl [ENGLISH VERSION]
* What ?
“Renaicendres” (literally “Reborn from the ashes”) is a mixed shawl in a crescent shape, in two colours, alternating garter stitch and a textured stitch.
* How ?
It is knit using two skeins of fingering weight yarn, from the top middle towards the border, with regular increases on each row.
The textured stitch will be more visible with two very contrasted colours!
* Why ?
Using two 100g skeins, Renaicendres is a reasonably sized shawl (not too big but not too small either!). The mix of garter stitch and textured stitch make it very squishy, which is perfect for those whose neck is a bit sensitive to the cold in the mid-season!
* Who ?
For those who wish to knit an easy, no fuss project, but with maximum effect!! ;)
Or, it could be the perfect gift for someone who wants a simple, discreet shawl, a woman as well as a man!
Two skeins of fingering weight (between 365-400m / 400-435 yards for 100g)
Approximately 350m / 380 yards of the main colorway (the beige) and 310m / 340 yards of the contrasting color (black).
I used Laféefil’s Mérinos SW, in colorways “Du vent sur les cendres”
(beige) and “L’Gaïette” (black).
3.5mm (US 4) needles recommended (depending on your gauge).
I recommend using circular needles (in order to better distribute the
weight of your project), with an 80cm / 32 inches cable for the first four sections, then 100cm / 40 inches for the remaining sections (it’s just a recommendation, for your comfort ^^).
24 stitches for 36 rows: 10x10 cm / 4x4 inches
