April in Paris is The Fibre Co.’s debut collection for the yarn Luma. There are six patterns inspired by the ‘City of Lights’ with each design taking its name from a Paris landmark.

Carrousel de Paris celebrates the many merry-go-rounds scattered through Paris and is named after the popular carrousel in the Jardin du Trocadéro.

This back buttoned top is knit from the bottom up starting with a pretty fern lace stitch that makes a light and beautifully handled fabric. The lace stitch ends just at the chest where a second colour is added for a feature stripe sequence. Capped sleeves add a feminine touch and the open back features large fabric covered buttons.
