Please note, 100% of profits from the sale of this pattern through the end of May 2020 will be donated to Chez Doris, a local shelter offering refuge to women in difficulty.

Chez Doris currently provides meals, respite, clothing, recreational activities and practical assistance in a secure, inclusive, respectful, and accepting environment on a daytime basis but is working to launch both an emergency overnight shelter and permanent residence for homeless women. We are looking forward to contributing to this critical initiative - now more than ever!

Fleur is a cheerful confection of a shawl that combines simple garter stitch and whimsical bobbles in a sweet, easy to wear accessory. Meditative knit stitch is interrupted by just four rows of bobbly texture to achieve a shawl that delivers high impact flare with minimal effort. La Bien Aimee Merino DK creates lovely drape while Cosy Posy Yarn Co. Fluff adds light, fuzzy contrast. Our version of Fleur brings to mind spring buds and summer blossoms but the colour and mood possibilities for this shawl are endless!
