Pattern Description:

'Champs fleuris', or field of flowers, is inspired by the breathtaking view of countryside fields were I used to spend my childhood vacation in Quebec. It is both resolutely feminine and warm at the same time, making it a perfect accessory for a countryside escape or a touch of glamour to your city outfit.

This gorgeous shawl is available in 2 sizes, a smaller kerchief size and a large full size shawl. It is worked from the bottom up, starting with the ruffles. A line of daisy pictorial lace follows, delimited by 2 Vikkel Braids and then a body of paquerette stitch finishes the shawl. There are 2 options available for the paquerette stitch section: one with the flower motif aligned with the spine of the shawl and another with the flower motif scattered.

I have been designing since 2008 and started being more professionally interested during the year 2010. I focus my designs on my own selfish interests: garments and accessories for boys (or unisex, of course), women and occasionally men.
