Paris knows a few hills, from which picturesque panoramas are offered to the onlooker. One of them, in the heart of Paris, is the Hill of Chaillot. The hill is adorned with modern art deco constructions such as the Palais de Chaillot and the Trocadéro Gardens. A play of balance, symmetry, and geometric shapes greets the visitor strolling along the fountains and manicured trees. And of course, for a truly Parisian experience, one can enjoy the exquisite views of the Eiffel Tower framed by the dancing water jets.

The Trocadéro Hill cowl is an ode to the fountains and scenic view of the Trocadéro. The cowl sports two lace patterns complementing each other and forming curves reminiscent of water jets and the Eiffel Tower. Knit and wrap yourself in your own icon!

For best effect, use a round yarn with good stitch definition. Yarn weights ranging from Fingering to Aran would be suitable. As for colorways, I would recommend solid, semi-solid, speckled, or gradient (single skein or gradient set) yarns.
