Product Description

​For millennia, migratory herds of Merino d’Arles sheep and their shepherds have roamed the fertile countryside across France, choosing the high meadows of the Alps during the summer and the lush plains of La Crau when winter’s chill hits. This asymmetrical triangle shawl is knit in Rosy Green Wool’s Merino d’Arles yarn and pays tribute to the breed with a playful mosaic stitch pattern and contrast of summery and wintery hues.

This kit contains 6 skeins of Rosy Green Wool Merino d’Arles (100% French organic Merino; 218 yds/50g), 2 skeins each in colors A, B and C. 

Melanie’s sample uses: 2 sk Mistral (color A); 2 sk Rhone (color B); 2 sk Ocre (color C).

Pattern uses US 6 (4.0 mm) circular needles or size to obtain gauge (not included in kit).  The gauge is 10 stitches and 20 rows = 2x2 inches in garter stitch, blocked.

The finished size is 114” (290 cm) wingspan along upper edge and 21.5” (55 cm) deep.
