Did you know that the Eiffel Tower is not painted all the same color? An ombré effect (with three shades of Eiffel Tower Bronze) is needed to make it all look the same because the castiron pieces are much closer together near the top, so they are painted a lighter color to appear the same as the bottom. Choose a jumbo skein of ombré yarn (or three skeins of your favorite fingering yarn) to knit up this lovely half-pi shawl that features scrolling cables at the bottom, just like the Tour Eiffel. Cables are provided in both charted and written formats

Errata:Page 46, column 3, line 12: Work Tour Eiffel Chart 2 for 54 rows--not 15.
