It’s so easy to be inspired by Paris. Over the years I’ve been taken in by the city’s landmarks, the architecture, and the ever-present sense of style.
In particular, I’ve formed a mental image of how the Seine River links the landmarks, and thought that would be the perfect theme for my newest project.
This design is for a top-down, heart-shaped, oversized bandana/shawl. The top and bottom sections are knit in lace patterns that evoke the architectural similarities of the Eiffel Tower and Louvre Pyramids. The middle area is a section of lace stitching representing the Seine River and its bridges (with beads interspersed in the borders).
In addition, I’ve inserted a narrow transition area, in a third stitch pattern (in the first color, Emerald, bordered with the second color, Emerald Blue).
The yarn is a luxury Malabrigo Lace Baby Merino, and the pattern requires 1 50g skein of Emerald and 1 50g skein of Emerald Blue.
