Montagne

$5.00

SIZES: 

Approximately 50" diameter (circular shawl), blocked.

MATERIALS: 

Expression Fiber Arts Resilient Sock yarn

Shown in color: Merryweather

If that color isn't available, any from this category will work. You will need 4 skeins (400 yds per skein).

The sample shown used approximately 1,353 yards.

Needle: 

US 2.5 / 3 mm double pointed needles, and 24"-32"-40" circular needles Size F / 3.75 mm crochet hook (for provisional cast on for the border).

Any size that is appropriate for the yarn selected. Refer to the tag/label for the recommended sizes. 

SKILL LEVEL:

Intermediate: This pattern is for those who have done some lace knitting in the past or who don't mind a little challenge. Skills involved: the ability to read charts, work lace patterns, knit in the round starting from a small stitch count, work a provisional cast on, and make a knitted bind off finished with Kitchener stitch grafting to complete the border.

Notes From the Designer: 

Winter brings images of snow, evergreen trees and glorious mountain peaks to mind, even for a Southern girl like me, so I decided to design a shawl filled with lace patterns that try to recreate these images. Montagne Shawl is the result - montagne is French for “mountain.”  It starts with plain knit at the center which transitions into a stand of trees with footpaths to the nearby mountains. Next come the foothills of the mountain just past the tree line, and then we see the snowcapped peaks - the crown glory of a mountain range.  Surrounding all of this is the border which ripples like the outline of mountains in the distance. While knitting this shawl you might feel like you're climbing a mountain, especially when you get to the later sections where the stitch count is high. But the end result is well worth the effort and perseverance, like scaling the heights to see a breathtaking mountain sunrise.

  • Shawl is worked in the round, starting in the center and gradually increasing until it reaches its final circumference.

  • Pattern includes both charts and written directions.

  • A knitted border, which serves as a decorative finish, is also the technique used to bind off the shawl. You'll begin it with a Provisional Cast On, working the chart back and forth to bind off the live shawl stitches and incorporate them into the border. Then it will end by grafting the final stitches to the provisional cast on using the Kitchener Stitch.

  • A solid or semi-solid/tonal yarn would probably work best for this pattern so the lace and stitch work can shine through.

  • Click the Videos tab to watch a tutorial of this pattern! You'll learn to how to get started with the shawl, using the Magic Loop method, and we'll show multiple stitches you'll use in the pattern.

This might be the most beautiful shawl I have ever seen, knitted or not. For the most part until the very end, instructions are clear and concise! Highly recommend you get this while it’s still free! Even after it is no longer free, however, I would stay it is still worth it!
