Let’s rediscover the magic of plants in Winter
Sign up by purchasing this Jardin d’Hiver Shawl starting November 1st.
Clue 1: Monday 27th of November
Clue 2: Monday 4th of December
Clue 3: Monday 11th of December
Clue 4: Monday 18th of December
The size and shape of the shawl are part of the mystery.
It will be large enough to warp most knitters up well.
Weight: DK or Sport or Heavy fingering with the same required gauge
Composition: We chose a blend of Linen and Cotton (95% Linen / 5% Cotton : Linaé from Natissea)
If you don’t want to use this yarn, I recommend a DK, sport or heavy fingering yarn containing a little of planted-based fiber or silk to achieve a certain drape.
Try to avoid any yarn containing too much halo (such as yarns containing a lot of mohair or alpaca, for example).
Approximately 705 m in total
- MC: 570 m
- CC1: 60 m
- CC2, CC2, CC3; 25 m
CC1 is a color in the same colorimetric range as MC (for example, dark and light green, beige and brown).
CC2, CC3 and CC3 are three other complementary colors.
Check on the pictures to see some suggestions for the color palette you need for this pattern. You’ll find kits here: Kit Jardin d’Hiver
NEEDLES AND NOTIONS
- A pair of 3.5 mm circ. needles paire d’aig. circulaires 3,5 mm if you knit with the original yarn (plant-based fibers often requires smaller needles).
If you choose an other yarn as animal-based fiber, use the appropriate needles to obtain the recommended gauge, otherwise the size of the shawl will be affected, as will the quantity of yarn required.
- A 3.5 mm hook 3.5 mm
- A tapestry needle

- Chenille embroidery needle (for fingering weight yarn)
- Solufix water-soluble embroidery stabilizer (not mandatory)
