Pastel Asymmetry by Hélène Marcy

A beautiful, unusual and warm asymetrial triangular shawl designed by Eclatdusoleil knitted with Poll Dorset wool in three steps:

The triangular centre is knitted sideways using the baktus principle. An i-cord at the top edge hides the colour changes and gives comfort and finally a pretty lace border is knitted at the end perpendicular to the edges of the central triangle.

Size after blocking: 160 cm (63'') wide 43 cm (17'') high at the tip.

The kit consists of

  • A pattern in English with written explanations plus a chart for the lace border.
  • 100 g Organic Poll Dorset 4 ply in Pastel:
  • 1 pack of 'L'ombre'
  • You will have leftover yarn to knit wristwarmers matching your shawl.

Possible substitution:

In the 4 ply Poll Dorset wool range, you can choose other combinations of 4 colours plus a big skein of one of the 4 colours as main colour.


  • Short circular needle 4 mm for the centre of the shawl
  • Two double-pointed needles 3.5 mm for the i-cord
  • Long circular needle 4.5 mm for the lace border
  • A yarn needle to weave in ends.
