Mornings in Paris
I designed this shawl with my good friend Liz in mind. While looking through Barbara Walker’s A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns, I found her Eiffel Tower Eyelet. (Liz and I and our knitting group frequently met at our local coffee shop, Mornings in Paris.) This shawl takes the Eiffel Tower Eyelet as a jumping off point and is beautiful on both the right and wrong sides. It comes in two sizes, the smaller of which can be completed with 1 skein of yarn.
The shawl begins with a garter tab and construction is top-down. Increases are worked at the edges and center on the right side. This pattern is charted only.
Blocked measurements Small (Large) :: 42 (55)” / 101.5 (139.75) cm across top by 16 (28)” / 40.75 (71) cm deep
1 (2) skeins Blue Moon Fiber Arts; 390 yds / 356 m per 3.38 oz / 96 g skein; 60% wool / 20% yak / 20% cultivated silk

Needles & Notions
Size 5 US / 3.75 mm 40” / 102 cm circular needles
2 stitch markers, tapestry needle, blocking pins
19 sts and 30 rows = 4” / 10 cm in pattern stitch from Charts A and B using Size 5 US / 4.5 mm needles, after blocking
Gauge is not critical for this pattern, but it is important if you want to make the smaller shawl from 1 skein and the larger shawl from 2 skeins.
Thank you to Liz A. for knitting the smaller sample, Katherine Vaughn for tech editing, and Blue Moon Fiber Arts for the yarn support.
