Free pattern Friday: Le Petit Parisien June 12, 2015 – Posted in: Free Pattern Fridays, Project Ideas
Lisa put this little pattern together weeks ago and somehow we haven’t managed to get it up on Ravelry yet. We’ll have it up there soon but, in the meantime, here it is for your simple summer knitting pleasure 🙂 Knit with Habu Wrapped Silk, Le Petit Parisien is a light, stylish little accessory with gorgeous texture and Parisian flair!
