This pattern is only available as a set with the Latin Quarter Shell, which is listed separately.

Inject your life with Parisian flair with this shawl and shell set, knitted in a sumptuous blend of Suri alpaca, merino, and a touch of glimmering stellina. Both pieces use a Tilted Ladder lace pattern combining eyelets and cables for undeniable visual and knitting interest. The shawl is finished with a collar along the edge that lends stability and allows you to wear it without fear of the shawl falling off your shoulders, as well as unique I-cord bows that replace traditional fringe. The shell completes the look with an echo of the Tilting Ladder pattern as its center panel, ensuring that you’ll sparkle.
