here it is—the potager lace stole, sister to the pea vines triangle shawl. i know that some of you have been waiting for this one, but i thought it would be fun to save it as a treat for my travel day, when i won’t be able to blog in person.
potager is the french word for “kitchen garden” and here, the pea vines and trellis patterns form a vertical garden landscape along the stole length. knit up in fingering weight yarn, it’s the perfect thing for fall and spring (and fun to knit, too!). there is even a scarf version included, if a larger project isn’t within your time budget right now.
shown here, a hybrid of two sizes offered in the pattern—the tall width knit in the petite length—mix and match the pattern sizing to suit your own taste.
this beautiful sample was knit by our incredible friend karolyn, who is always so enthusiastic; i can never get over how much she enjoys test knitting. when kim asked her which colorway of the pandora yarn she’d like, karolyn just couldn’t decide, so she told kim to “surprise” her. we all agree that this gorgeous shade of rose is absolutely perfect—it’s one of those colors that looks great on everyone (and pink is karolyn’s favorite, as it turns out). thank you kim!
and then there is my dear, wonderful friend beckie, who agreed to model the stole for us—doesn’t she look outstanding in it? she’s such a great sport and so fun to photograph; i just love her—and who wouldn’t??
(that’s my most favorite picture of the day)
thanks too to kian, too, who kept himself busy in my garden while we worked—you can catch a glimpse of him here and there, rummaging through the tomato vines looking for “wed wuns” (that kid eats tomatoes like they are going out of style, haha! oh yeah; they are, in about a month . . .).
how about ending with a few more beautiful shots of beckie?
