Product Details

This semi-circular shawl was inspired by the ceiling of the Henri Labrouste reading room of the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris. I first read about the room in a book about French ironwork, but when I looked for more pictures online I fell in love with the finished ceiling.

The shawl suggests part of one of the domes and the lace border is adapted from the curving bands of designs on the ceiling.

This pattern was the subject of my 2015 Tour de France KAL. There's a lot of simple knitting involved, which is great for watching the Tour de France!
