~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Like almost everyone else with a taste for old movies, “Casablanca” is one of my favorites… and so the name, “Always, Paris.” I hardly think you’d need a wool-y hat in Morroco, but the colorwork is Maghreb-inspired, and you never know where Victor, Ilsa or Rick will end up!

The colorwork pattern is charted only.
