“Camargue” is a triangular area of Provence in the south of France. With the Rhone delta and salt wetlands, it’s famous for its pink flamingos, white Camargue horses and black bulls. Its wild long beaches such as l’Espiguettte offer amazing sights and long beach walks.
We spent a few days in Camargue last week and enjoyed long beach walks, cycling among salt marshes, black bulls, semi-wild horses and pink flamingos.. We visited the magnificent town of Aigues mortes and ate outside hearing the sailboats in the harbour.
All this felt like the perfect setup for my new shawl design: the Camargue shawl !
Camargue shawl is a sideways shawl with discreet lace pattern, finished a spectacular ruffled edging. Make the most of the beauty of Noro yarns (or any other self-striping or handpainted yarns) !
Pattern is easy to customize with different weights of yarn: start with the body of shawl, and stop whenever the length of shawl suits you. The added ruffle edging will then adapt to your chosen size of shawl !
- Dragon-tail shaped shawl, worked sideways. Ruffled edging is then added along 2 borders of the triangle.
- Instructions includes directions for 2 sizes of shawl: size 1 showed above in burgundy, size 2 shown in turquoise.
- Made using either Fingering weight yarn (Noro « Flower bed ») or Sports weight yarn (Noro « Silk garden sock »)
- Designed so that you can customize the size of shawl, and/or use any yarn weight to make it.
- This crochet pattern was thoroughly tested to ensure it’s error-free and as clear as can be. Includes step-by-step photos and a photo-tutorial for the special stitch used for body of shawl.
