La vie est belle (Dieppe) was designed for the fifth (!!!) meeting-the-gang weekend that will take place april 28/29th in Dieppe/France. Again, the goal was to keep the knitting easy enough to be able to giggle and babble and have a glass of red wine (or two…). It is a fun accessory that combines the shape of a triangular shawl with a casual cowl. It is worked back and forth on the bias, from the right edge towards the left edge in 3 steps. Easy lace pattern bands add interest and make knitting this a fun experience. The combination of lace and squishy garter stitch gives this cowl/shawlette a sophisticated yet casual look.
