Midnight in Paris




July is here and we have really ad a gorgeous Summer thus far! But right now it's looking quite gloomy, gray and cold, outside... To brighten things up, I have just released a new pattern: Midnight in Paris Shawl.

Hope you like it as much as I do! I'm really liking the feminine look, even with a bit of lace. And I'm not feeling it looks like a doily as I so often do with lace. Maybe it's La Bien Aimée's gorgeous fade that makes all the difference.





Midnight in Paris

Midnight in Paris shawl is a lovely half-pi shawl with texture interest and ever so fabulous fading colors. This easy construction creates a wonderfully wearable shawl that you can either wrap around your neck or just wear over the shoulders.

Lace parts are easily worked in-between all the shaping, so even the beginner lace knitters can enjoy them! Pick up your favorite color fade and enjoy the smooth changes of all the textures and colors!

Note: The lace is both charted and written out.
