This is a kit and includes the Beaubourg pattern, (4) skeins of Urth Yarns' Uneek Worsted, and (4) skeins of Monokrom Worsted.

Beaubourg is a Museum of contemporary art in Paris. Some will tell you it is an eyesore, but I am partial to this colourful building in the very heart of grey Paris. Beaubourg is a large rectangular wrap that features two-colour brioche and slipped stitches against a background of garter stitch to represent the colourful pipes that run up the façade of the museum.
