PATTERN DETAILS

It's so easy to be inspired by Paris. Over the years I've been taken in by the city's landmarks, the architecture, and the ever-present sense of style. In particular, I've formed a mental image of how the Seine River links the landmarks, and thought that would be the perfect theme for my newest project. This design is for a top-down, heart-shaped, oversized bandana/shawl. The top and bottom sections are knit in lace patterns that evoke the architectural similarities of the Eiffel Tower and Louvre Pyramids. The middle area is a section of lace stitching representing the Seine River and its bridges (with beads interspersed in the borders). The beads include 3-4mm, 3-sided sterling silver beads and 8mm translucent cathedral crystal beads with gold and blue/green highlights. In addition, I've inserted a narrow transition area, in a third stitch pattern (in the first color, Emerald, bordered with the second color, Emerald Blue).? The yarn is a luxury Malabrigo Lace Baby Merino, and the pattern requires1 50g skein of Emerald and 1 50g skein of Emerald Blue. The architectural elements and transition are knit in Emerald and the river and bridges in Emerald Blue. Measurements: 56 inches (142 cm) across the top line; 47 inches (120 cm) at the widest point; 27 inches (68.5 cm) from top line to bottom point Errata - Row 45 should read as follows: Row 45: (K1, YO) twice; K11, (K1, K2tog, YO, K5, YO, SSK, K1) 4 times; K7; YO, K1, YO, K7, (K1, K2tog, YO, K5, YO, SSK, K1) 4 times; K11, (YO, K1) twice (135 stitches) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Some lace knitting experience is needed.
