Long, draping shape of Pont Neuf combines squishy garter stitch with an attractive textured panel of lace and cable. It is knitted in bouncy Illustrious yarn from West Yorkshire Spinners, which blends Falklands wool with British alpaca to create a warm, airy fabric.
The shawl begins, with a lace and cable motif, at the lower point. Its garter portion is then arched sideways through shaping, taking the pattern around itself to the end.
