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.

You can purchase Luma from select local yarn shops around the world and directly from The Fibre Co.’s online shop. Follow this link for a list of stockists.

Jardin des Plantes celebrates the main botanical garden in France located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris on the left bank of the river Seine and also happens to be a short walk from a favourite LYS called L’Oisive Thé.

A feature lace design sits on the back panel of this raglan cardigan. The neckline and cuff has a pretty scallop edge with a simple garter stitch at the hem. Both the fronts and sleeve begin with approximately 8 cm (3 inches) of the lace stitch and then transition into stocking stitch. The button band is finished with a mid-grey shell button.
