Vendanges, the French word for grape harvesting in a vineyard, is inspired by the time the designer, Tricotbec, has spent in her parents’ vineyard. This simple yet pretty shawl adds just the right touch of feminine rusticity to any outfit.
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.
