Canicule Shawl & Mitts eBook

A triangular shawl in two versions, worked from the top down, with a matching set of fingerless, gusseted mittens.

Knitted at a very loose gauge as shown, the shawls are light and drapey for spring and summer. Knit them at other gauges and with other yarns for different effects and densities.

The mittens are worked in the round, and can be knitted matched or mismatched, mixing and matching two different cuffs and top edgings, featuring a gusseted thumb.
A needle one or two sizes smaller is necessary if knitting the lace cuff, and optionally for the top edge bind-off.

Both written and charted instructions.

Version A (green, Mikonos yarn) is easy to resize. It is possible to resize Version B (yellow, Setanova yarn), but it is more challenging.

Gauge for version A (Green) is 12 sts x 20 rows (4”/10 cm > St st).
Gauge for version B (Yellow) is 15 sts x 20 rows (4”/10 cm > St st).
Gauge is however not very important for the shawls.
Gauge for mittens (Yellow) is 26 sts x 30 rows (4”/10 cm > St st).
