Biscotte Yarns

Bain de Soleil Shawl | Knitting Kit

This shawl is an original design by Louise Robert for Biscotte Yarns. Bain de soleil (which means "sun bath" in french) highlights high quality hand-dyed yarns, including Speckled Super Sock from the Louise Robert Design Collection. A soft and warm sunbath to wear all year long - especially needed during the cold winter months!

"The inspiration for this shawl came from the colors themselves. Waiting for a spring that was late coming, I had a visceral need for vitamin D. This is how “Bain De Soleil” (which mean Sunbath in french) fell from my needles as would a ray of heat on my skin on a summer day." - Louise, talking about the original colors (Kit #8)

J’ai beaucoup appris avec ce modèle

Des heures de plaisir !

Beau châle léger, agréable à faire en cette période de confinement. Patron facile à suivre. Belle laine de qualité. Les dimensions sont parfaites pour porter « une petite laine ». J’en ferai un autre de couleur différente.
