In Paris, the Pont des Arts Bridge crosses the Seine River; it was featured in the last episode of Sex and the City and is now a popular place for lovers. The tradition is to attach a padlock to one of the bars of the bridge, tossing the key into the river below. This signifies the couple’s everlasting love. Inspired by an unbelievably luxurious yarn, I’ve created a slim‐fitting pencil skirt which sits stylishly high on the waist and is punctuated with horizontal purl stripes. Worked from the top down in one seamless piece, you’ll be ready for a romantic stroll over the river in no time flat!
