This pattern is the subject of my 5th annual Tour de France Knit Along, starting July 5th. During the Tour de France, Peloton is automatically discounted to $4.

After the Tour de France is over (July 27th, 2014), the pattern price will go up to the regular price of $6.

This semi-circular shawl is inspired by the riders of the Tour de France. The lace patterns show the different shapes that groups of riders take during the race: diagonal lines in a crosswind, a pointed arrow when in hot pursuit, and a long winding string when climbing tough mountains. The shawl finishes off with bicycle wheels (adapted from Barbara Walker’s Cogwheel pattern).

A small shawl can be knit with one skein of fingering weight yarn (approx. 1 set of “wheels”). The sample shawl was knit with almost two full skeins (800yds) of Tosh Sock in Saffron.
