Notes

This was a deep, cleansing breath after working with the mohair/silk of my Cloud Illusions project!! Soothing, slick, quick, easy, delightful. Love the yarn. Love the pattern! Architectural elements have long stirred my soul; so, when I saw this pattern last week, I could not supress my desire to start it… and I LOVE it!! ;)

Thank you, Jessie for this gift of a wonderful pattern!

The colorway is named Turquoise, but it has a very definite verdigris appearance to me… since I have never seen the Eiffel Tower in person, I am painting mine aged copper in my mind’s eye. ;)

Knitted as written. Used a size 7 needle instead of size 6. Did a stretchy bind-off (as almost always). Used most all of the two skeins of Mad DK.

Color in the outside shots are a little darker than really appears (shade).
