This shawl can be made with four skeins of our Luster Sport yarn, and it is adjustable. However, gauge is important to the making of this item. Please take the time to make a gauge swatch to ensure that your gauge is the same as the designer’s. This pattern uses almost all of Colors A and D, so swatch with Color B or C.
If those colors aren’t available, any from this category will work.
US size 5 (3.75 mm) 32" (60 cm) or longer circular needles, or size needed to obtain gauge
This Adventurous Beginner to Intermediate level pattern is for those knitters who are ready to learn some new skills or stitch combinations. Stitches include short rows with wrap and turn, p2tog decreases, yo increases, and slipped stitches.
Notes from the Designer:
The Parisian Blues kit immediately brought to mind the scenic beauty of the Seine River. Imagine strolling across one of the many bridges in Paris with this shawl draped around you. Short rows create subtle shifts in a basic wave pattern, mimicking ripples in a river. This technique is much easier if you use stitch markers at each pattern repeat as directed. If you prefer, you can omit short rows altogether and simply repeat the six-row Set-up section until you use up each color or have your desired number of rows. You can also customize the length; each pattern repeat is 18 stitches, with three stitches added to both ends to create the edging. Cast on in any multiple of 18 stitches plus six.

- Gauge is important to the making of this item. Please take the time to make a gauge swatch to ensure that your gauge is the same as the designer’s.
- Blocking makes a DRASTIC difference in overall dimensions. Be sure to WASH and BLOCK a gauge swatch made from the Set-Up section to ensure your results. This pattern uses almost all of Colors A and D, so swatch with Color B or C.
- The size is adjustable. Cast on is a multiple of 18 + 6.

Loving this pattern! Easy to follow and understand. The video has helped so much. Thank you!
This is such a beautiful shawl, I can't way until can start it.
I just started this pattern, I am loving how easy it is to work, so delicate, and danty with the fan and feather look, just loving it so much I'm using stash yarn from Hobbii Dolce Cashmere which makes it so soft
I do believe I have chosen the yard for this one, I haven't started or read the pattern yet. Just drooled over it...so very pretty! Too many project too little time.
I have the pattern but have not started the shawl. I love the shading of the yarn.
Absolutely beautiful. Can't wait to make it. As always, we'll written and easy to understand.
Is absolutely gorgeous
Very beautiful colors
I absolutely love this pattern. I haven't started it yet. I am trying to finish up a few of the things I am already working on. Then I get to do something for me and this may be it. Really looking forward tp stitching it. Thank you to you and the very, very talented designer.
Just had to start this when it came out, i am doing this in two colourways spunk which is a blue, gray and cream and a kitten which is a dark grey. great pattern and lovely to do
What a beautiful pattern! I have not made this yet, but the pattern is written very clearly. I understand everything except not sure about when you come to a wrapped stitch do you knit the wrap and the stitch? Also I would love it if you all could add on each pattern how many you cast on for the sample. Love, love Expression Fiber Arts. ?❤️?
Love your patterns, especially the wearable items, don't wear or use dhawls
This looks like an amazing pattern. Can't wait to cast on!
