Description

This semi-circular shawl is inspired by the riders of the Tour de France. The lace patterns show the different shapes that groups of riders take during the race: diagonal lines in a crosswind, a pointed arrow when in hot pursuit, and a long winding string when climbing tough mountains. The shawl finishes off with bicycle wheels (adapted from Barbara Walker's Cogwheel pattern).

A small shawl can be knit with one skein of fingering weight yarn (approx. 1 set of "wheels"). The sample shawl was knit with almost two full skeins (800yds) of Tosh Sock in Saffron.

This pattern was the subject of my 5th annual Tour de France Knit Along.
