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!

Guinguette

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!
