€3,062 in profits from the sale of the Notre-Dame individual pattern between April 16th and 30th, 2019 were donated to the “Collecte Nationale” organized by La Fondation du Patrimoine to help rebuild Notre-Dame, until the end of April.

Evoking both the Rose Windows and the spectacular stonework, the Notre-Dame Shawl is a surprisingly easy shawl to knit—perfect TV or social knitting. Beginning at the center and working outwards, this circular shawl has elements of Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Pi Shawl construction before striking out on its own. Simple twisted stitches, cables, and mesh are provided in chart form only.

Errata (for print copies only): Pages 36-7: Chart Key: Ssk, K2tog, and S2kpo symbols were omitted; they are the same as those used in Running Up That Hill. Chart 4, Rnd 119: S2kpo should be K1-tbl.

Errata (print and digital copies):

  • Chart 1, rounds 26 and 27, the lines should start and end with two knit stitches // Grille 1, tours 26 et 27, les lignes doivent commencer et se terminer par deux mailles endroit.
  • Chart 4, round 51, there is a symbol without legend: it’s a “knit through the back loop”. // Grille 4, tour 51, il y a un symbole qui n’a pas de légende, c’est une “maille endroit torse”.
  • Chart 4, round 94, there is a purl stitch between the last two crossed stitches, instead of a knit stitch // Grille 4, tour 94, il y a une maille envers entre les deux dernières mailles croisées, à la place d’une maille endroit.
  • Chart 4, round 116, there is a yarn over right after the first crossed stitches, instead of a knit stitch // Grille 4, tour 116, il y a un jeté tout de suite après les premières mailles croisées, à la place d’une maille endroit.
  • Chart key, names and instructions for 1/3 RPC & 1/3 LPC are reversed. The pictures are showing the correct directions. // Légende, les noms des torsades 1/3 RPC et 1/3 LPC sont inversées. Les symboles montrent la bonne orientation.

Errata (digital copies only): Missing abbreviations // Abréviations manquantes
Pl = place // P = placer
Sl = Slide // G = glisser
m = marker // M = marqueur
BOR = beginning of round // DR = Début du rond
M2 = Double lifted increase = insert left needle tip from front to back under the bar between stitches, lifting it to form a new loop on left needle, (k1-tbl, p1) in this loop—2 sts inc’d // 2-aug - double augmentation = insérez la pointe de l’aiguille gauche d’avant en arrière sous la barre entre les les mailles, soulevez-la pour former une nouvelle maille et placez-la sur l’aiguille gauche puis tricotez (1m end torse, 1m env) dans cette nouvelle maille—2m en plus

Please note that chart 4, due to its width, is split in two halves and as a result, one of the symbols is split in two as well on round 114. Those two half-symbol are to be considered as one (and not as two symbols without legend) // Merci de noter que la grille 4 est coupée en deux en raison de sa largeur. De ce fait, un symbole tour 114 est également coupé en deux. Il convient de le considérer dans son ensemble et non pas comme deux symboles distincts qui n’auraient pas de légende.
