Notes: Vionnet is started from the centre back neck with a provisional cast-on for a garter and twisted rib square. Once this is complete, Vionnet is worked as for a top-down shawl until the body width is reached. Once there, it’s worked as a chevron until the body length is reached. After that, stitches are decreased on either side to fill in the remainder of the square. Once the body is complete, the border is picked up around three edges and worked in twisted rib, and then three-needle cast-offs are worked on the side edges to create armholes.These armholes are then finished with twisted ribbing.
