Gardens of Giverny Shawl is now available in rectangular version Gardens of Giverny Stole.

Gardens of Giverny shawl and stole were inspired by paintings of Claude Monet. He fell in love with Giverny while looking out of a train window. He bought a house and land and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. Some of his most famous paintings were of his gardens in Giverny. This shawl is like his paintings — balanced brightly colored lace patches surrounded by simple garter frames.

Shawl worked neck-down, in garter stitch with short row(no warps) sections of simple lace in-between. Size is completely customizable, it can be big shawl or small shawlette.

Pattern available in two formats: compact (2 pages) and large print (4 pages) - instructions in larger print format ( this version is better for those who uses portable devices like tablets and e-readers; also for those knitters who have difficulties reading small font on paper)
