Kits for Guinguette

Do you want to knit Guinguette?

I’m happy to present 5 versions of the kit!

Version 1, in granite grey, apricot, tangerine and hot pink. Those were the colours I used in my first prototype.

Version 2, in granite grey, daffodil, bubblegum pink and pansy. These were the colours in the test knit that resulted in the final version of the pattern!

Version 3, in mouse grey, apricot, tangerine and hot pink. The vivid colours in version 1 take on yet more intensity against the backdrop in darker grey.

Version 4, in granite grey, bubblegum pink, hot pink and fuchsia. I could not resist suggesting an assortment of pinks, here subtly enhanced by the granite grey.

Version 5, in mouse grey, bubblegum pink, hot pink and fuchsia. Set against a darker grey, these pinks take on a rock’n’roll flavour!

I’m very happy to introduce my latest pattern: Guinguette, a knitted shawl!

It’s a crescent-shaped shawl, mixing an easy, textured stitch pattern with stripes. The bottom edge is finished with a garland of pompoms, reminiscent of the string lights in traditional French taverns called “guinguettes”.

I have also prepared some kits – I couldn’t stop playing with my beautiful fingering merino, so there are 5 versions available!

Paving – Josiane’s version

I’m very happy to share this version of the pattern Paving (designed by EclatDuSoleil) made by Josiane.

Josiane used 2 balls of Beth Chatto to make her stole (other alternatives are London or Covent Garden). After a few tests needed to adapt the pattern to this yarn (fewer stitches and a larger hook), and a modification of the border, the result is fabulous! Thank you, Josiane!

Shipping dates December 2019

Shipping of physical products will be suspended from the 21st December 2019 to the 2nd January 2020. To have your products shipped before the Christmas holidays, you will need to place your order at the latest on the 19th December 2019 at noon (Paris time), so I can ship it on the 20th.

Postal services generally take longer than usual in December. Also, please be aware that a strike movement will take place in France from the 5th December and for an unlimited time, which may cause additional delays.

Unfortunately, for personal reasons, I also must suspend shipping from the 2nd to the 13th of December. I am truly sorry for this. I explain the reasons behind this decision in my latest podcast in English, linked below.

Pdf patterns are of course available via download 24/7 as usual. For gift-giving, please consider the gift vouchers available in the shop, also delivered as pdf’s.

Thank you for your understanding – I wish you a lovely December month!
