Frutteto is Italian for “orchard”.
The perfect summer and/or holiday knitting project.
Frutteto Shawl is slightly asymmetrical in shape and design and very easy to knit. It is cast on at one wing tip with a few stitches and then simply knit into a widening triangle. It begins with a leaf motif winding down one side of the shawl on a bed of reverse stocking stitch. This section may be adjusted in length before progressing into the leafy lace border.
The pattern is very easily adaptable to the size desired and the yarn quantity available.
Both Charted and written instruction included.
Any fingering weight wool or wool blend would work well with this pattern.
Solid or semi-solid colorways recommended to show the details of the design.
Gauge: 20 sts to 4" over stocking stitch, unblocked.
Blocked size of sample shown: 56 inches across by 24 inches deep and used 530m.
