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.

Galerie d’Apollon is a room in the famous Louvre Museum and this red shawl has been so named in memory of an iconic image of Audrey Hepburn in the 1957 film Funny Face wearing a red Givenchy gown and matching shawl standing on a stairway in front of a sign pointing to ‘Galerie d’Apollon’.

The Galerie d’Apollon shawl is knit in a simple rectangle shape using a lace flower bud stitch, which has a natural subtle waved edging.
