April in Paris is The Fibre Co.’s debut collection for the yarn Luma. There are six patterns inspired by the ‘City of Lights’ with each design taking its name from a Paris landmark.
Rue Cambon is named after a French revolutionary who was a descendant of a fabric manufacturer. It is also synonymous with high fashion house Chanel located at 31 Rue Cambon in the 1st arrondissement of Paris in the heart of so many attractions such as the Place Vendome, Tuileries Gardens, and Eglise de la Madeleine. This sweet design is reminiscent of the simple lines of the cardigan jacket made famous by Chanel.
A seamless top down construction, this buttoned cardigan has a scoop neck and is accented with raglan lines in columns of textured stitches. The cardigan is fastened with four buttons and has 3/4 length sleeves finished in cuffs that are knit from side to side. Twisted stitches are used on the cuffs, hem and neckband.
