Les rêveurs shawl
“ They are enthusiasts, devotees. Something about the circus stirs their souls. They seek each other out, telling of how they found the circus, how those first few steps were like magic. Like stepping into a fairy tale under a curtain of stars… And so begins a tradition of rêveurs attending Le Cirque des Rêves decked in black & white with a single shock of red. Often, just before dawn, there is no color to be seen in the circus, save for their small splashes of scarlet. ”
Les Rêveurs is a crescent shaped shawl that was inspired by a magical book written by Erin Morgenstern: The Night Circus.
It is shaped with increases on both the right and wrong side, with a total of 6 increases over two rows. It is worked from the top, has a textured body, a simple elegant lace section and a fun edging that combines beads and a picot bind off. Instructions are written only.
The shawl calls for just one skein of fingering weight yarn, in a solid or tonal color, and a 4.5 mm circular needle. An optional beaded bind off adds an extra touch of magic to the pattern.
