Notorious, scandalous and celebrated – the women of the demi-monde in Paris during the nineteenth century made their mark on society. This shawl collection draws inspiration from eight of these femme-fatales.
There are eight shawls in the collection: La Lune Rousse, Mogador, d’Antigny, Apollonie, La Barucci, La Païva, Léonide, and Duplessis.
All the shawls each use 1 skein of fingering weight (approximately 350-400 yds / 320-366 m). Two are beaded, though the beads are optional and can be omitted if preferred. There are a mix of shapes and construction methods (top-down, bottom-up, etc.).
Patterns can be purchased individually on the following pages:
