Pont Neuf has seen a revamp last week with new photography and layout and is now available on Ravelry and LoveKnitting.com directly from me.

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.

  • Difficulty Intermediate – Knit, purl, lace, cables, increases and decreases, and simple finishing.
  • Measurements Approximately 35 in / 89 cm along cast off edge and 45 in / 114 cm tall along cable edge.
  • Yarn West Yorkshire Spinners, Illustrious DK (70% Falkland wool, 30% British Alpaca; 100 g / 245 yds / 225 m), Rose Quartz. 2 skeins. Substitute with approximately 490 yds / 450 m of DK or Worsted weight yarn.
  • Gauge 15 sts and 36 rows = 4 in / 10 cm in garter stitch.
  • Needles & Notions Size 5 mm (US 8) 24 in / 60 cm circular needles Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge. Markers Cable needle Yarn needle.
