It's always particularly satisfying when a pattern comes together with a yarn in an unexpected way. We were so impressed with this project that we couldn't wait to show you.
, one of the eighteen stylish patterns from French Girl Knits
by Kristeen Griffin-Grimes. It's designed for super bulky yarn, so four skeins of Debbie Bliss Paloma
stepped up to the mark beautifully.
What's more, this is one of the fastest projects ever! It took literally a couple of hours, and the result will see you through an entire season in the best Parisian style.
In the original pattern, the front was closed with a leather lace, but we've found an alternative we like even better: This Is Knit's exclusive Nova steel shawl pin
, custom-designed by Eimear Earley. What a lovely Mother's Day present, too!
