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.

VERSION 2 combines Espace Tricot Grace and Halo (or Emilia & Philomene Léona) for a beautiful, sophisticated accessory. This low-contrast version also features smaller bobbles .
