“Urbaine des Champs” can be loosely translated as “urban country girl”, which is very much what I consider myself. This luxurious wrap is so named because it is perfect for the city life or a weekend jaunt in the country. Perfect for a day picking apples, visiting a local winery or just hanging out.

It is made from Amelie by Illimani Yarn. It is a delightful, soft and lighweight yarn. It is impossible to describe it with words. It’s extremely light weight and beautiful texture is the result of the combination of three fibers using a new technology. Composition: 56% Mulberry Silk, 40% Baby Alpaca, 4% Merino Aran weight,

Materials: 6 skeins of Amelie from Illimani Yarns
Needle: Size 6.5mm (US 8) needle
Guage: 16sts x 20 rows= 4” inches after blocking in seed stitch blocked
Size: 22” X 90” blocked, can be shortened by using 5 skeins and length would be approximately 75”

Note: Urbaine des Champs is also the name of the hippest clothing boutique in Sutton which carries many Quebecois designers. Worth a visit if you are in my neck of the woods.

un gros merci à Renée qui m’a aidé réaliser ce projet
