Notes from the Designer:

Bleuet is the French word for “blueberries.” The colors of this shawl include all the colors of a blueberry. Look closely at a blueberry growing, and you will see several shades of blue, a grayish tone, and green leaves. This shawl is created from those exact colors, so the name Bleuet fits perfectly.

This shawl is a top-down, trapezoid shaped shawl; however, the basic set-up row for a trapezoid shawl has been altered to create a lovelier shape that sits on the shoulders. The shawl is knitted holding two strands of yarn, which results in four colors transforming into eight colors – four solid and four blended colors. Your choice of colors will mix to form interesting blends of color. The bottom edge of this shawl has a picot edge, which adds a frilly border. A collar adds a finished look, as well as a warm feature for the wearer.

  • The sample shown used approximately 1299 yds/1189 m total: C1) 332 yds/304 m, C2) 318 yds/ 291 m, C3) 308 yds/282 m, and C4) 341 yds/312 m.
  • Before knitting anything, divide each skein into two equal cakes or balls. This pattern is worked by holding two strands throughout.
  • IMPORTANT: You should not change your color strands at the end of a row, or you will have a messy border. Instead, cut the working yarn at the end of the row before a color change, leaving a 7” (18 cm) tail. Each change will only affect one strand. Use a square knot to tie the tail to the new color, and continue knitting your pattern. The knot will occur a few inches past the yarn over. You can clean up the tails later, and you will have a clean edge without knots.
  • Each stripe is 14 rows, except for the bottom stripe, which has 10 rows and the BO.
  • SIZING ADJUSTMENT: This shawl is 44” (112 cm) along the picot edge, measured from the elbow across the top of the shoulders and then behind the neck and back to the other elbow. To increase the size of the shawl, add two additional stripes. Each additional stripe adds 5” (13 cm). If you make the shawl wider or longer, you will need an additional skein of yarn.
  • Every row adds six stitches. To make the shawl longer, add additional rows.
  • No matter the size or number of stripes you knit, the collar will be the same size and shape.

Not finished knitting this yet but so far the pattern has been really easy to follow and I already love how the cape looks. Changing increases to M1L/M1R as I am not a fan of YO increases.
