Free Knit Pattern-- La Vie En Rose Shawl

Are you looking for a one cake (skein) project? The La Vie En Rose Shawl is the perfect knit project for you. 

The free knit pattern calls for one cake of Caron Latte Cake. The yarn itself is super soft and I really enjoyed working with it. Another yarn that is similar to this yarn is Red Heart's Hygge yarn. They are similar; however, the thickness of the yarn is a little different. 

Caron Latte Cake is a bit thinner than the Red Heart Hygge. If you are unable to find the Caron Latte Cake (which seems to be a seasonal yarn that only comes out in the winter time), you can substitute with Red Heart Hygge if you don't mind the slight gauge difference. You will end up with a slightly larger shawl. I actually have an extra skein of Red Heart Hygge from my Homeschool Cardigan design so I will likely make another loving shawl with it. 

The only downside to using the Hygge yarn for this project is that they only come in one solid color whereas Caron Latte Cakes come with color changes.
