An adaptation of designer Peggy Jean Kaylor's L’ Affichage Demoiselle Petite Shawl this kit is modified to work with Skeino Violetta DK Weight yarn.

The initial design sketch was reminiscent of the Demoiselle Crane which is well known for its courtship display dance. When these small cranes migrate, they fly directly over the Himalayan Mountains and wearing this shawl is like being held in the wings’ embrace. Due to subtle shaping, the shawl sits securely on your shoulders without slipping off. Wearing it is simultaneously like spreading your wings to fly off confidently, no matter the obstacles that exist in front of you.

L'affichage Demoiselle Petite is not overly complex in the knitting, but it does require a knowledge of short rows and intarsia style knitting.  The instructions are written out in a tabulated written abbreviated format and. The 14-page pattern is formatted to facilitate printing only the pages of instructions that are needed for either the tabulated written-abbreviated or the fully charted directions

Sample Colorway:  Daisy

NOTE:  THIS KIT INCLUDES ONLY A DIGITAL PATTERN.   The pattern can be download with your purchase and includes a redeemable code to add the original pattern in Ravelry for free! If you need a printed pattern please notate in the order notes there will be an additional charge of $3.00 due to the size of the full pattern.

Designer

This is our first collaboration with Peggy Jean “PJ” Kaylor. She learned her first knitting and crochet stitches as a young child of about 4 from a maternal great-grandmother and a paternal grandmother; then was mentored further by two aunts, one on each side of the family. These days, she finds that she doesn’t need to have a pattern. Frequently, she doodles ‘from her head’ until she gets something that works well for the yarn she’s playing with. The response to her doodlings has prompted her to begin publishing patterns for the best of them.
