Carrousel de Paris
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.
