Product details

I love the great train stations of the nineteenth century. They are sometimes called ‘the cathedrals of the industrial age’ and it is their architecture that inspired this shawlette. The asymmetric shape reminds me of the support structures underneath the awnings and massive arched roofs of the stations, which were both functional as well as decorative. Texture in the shape of garter stitch ridges and small sections of short rows keeps the knitting interesting, while the simple stockinette stitch shows off the beautiful colors of hand-dyed yarns. Taking just one skein of a fingering or sock yarn, Gare du Nord knits up surprisingly quickly. As the short rows require no wrapping this would make a good project for knitters who are new to this technique.
