Originally released as part of our Wild Prairie Knits 2015 Year of Mystery Shawls with with a virtual tour of Paris!

As we tour Paris, we will be working on a rectangular, lacy wrap in 2 colors with some interesting construction, twinkling yarn and optional beadwork.

We will be creating this gorgeous wrap while we get to know all about Paris and its amazing history, architecture, people and food. Our lovely, lacy shawl is created from two contrasting colors of fingering weight yarn, one sparkly and one not, and glittering beads. Beading is optional, but a great introduction to using beads.

Once again our friends at Stunning String Studio are offering “Paris in the Springtime” yarn kits including yarn in your choice of over 125 amazing colors, beads and stitch markers.

The pattern discussions will be in the Wild Prairie Knits group, so come and join us.
