Fleur is a beautiful 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 style with minimal effort.
In VERSION 1 La Bien Aimee Merino DK creates lovely drape while Espace Tricot Suri Silk Cloud adds light, fuzzy contrast. This version of Fleur brings to mind spring buds and summer blossoms but the colour and mood possibilities are endless!
VERSION 2 combines Espace Tricot Grace and Halo for a beautiful, sophisticated accessory. This low-contrast version also features smaller bobbles.
