Eugene is the bonus pattern in the Three Belles and One Beau collection, and may be purchased individually or as part of the ebook.

A gentlemanly companion to the Three Belles, Eugene is the perfect Beau. Simple and understated with strong, clean lines, he complements his fancy partners with subdued elegance. This elongated bias wrap is worked in stockinette and garter stitch with textured stripes and top edge, and is equally suitable for men or women. A well-mannered partner, Eugene is agreeable to customization to accommodate varying yardage and personalized garter accent stripe placement. Eugene is part of Three Belles & One Beau, a collection featuring three diverse sideways shawls with short row details, plus one simple sideways textured wrap.
