Ilga Leja Mimi $10.00

Untitled 2

PDF will be emailed after purchase.


On Christmas Eve, Mimi, the gentle embroiderer in La Boheme, meets and falls in love with Rodolfo, a poor Parisian poet.  It is winter and she is already ill.  As lovely as she is, she will not survive the year.

Her shawl, though, will keep her warm and there is barely a scene in the opera in which she is not wearing it.


Ilga Leja's Mimi shawl is worked in several sections, each with its own features. It ends with a lacy knitted-on edging for the lower border. It is shown here in two contrasting colors, a handpainted color for the main section and a solid color for the borders.

The pattern includes two versions: a shawlette (as pictured) and a full-size shawl, a wrap large enough to serve as a warm jacket.  The sample pictured is knit with Fleece Artist Woolie Silk 3 Ply (230 m./252 yds. per 100 g. skein).
