Pastel Asymmetry by Hélène Marcy

A beautiful, unusual and warm asymetrial triangular shawl designed by Eclatdusoleil knitted with our Merinos d'Arles wool in four colours:

This intrigueing knit is made in three steps, first 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: 190 cm wide 43 cm high at the tip.

The kit consists of

  • A pattern in English with written explanations plus a chart for the lace border.
  • 133 g Merinos d'Arles 4 ply in Pastel:
  • 3 x 25g of shell, mulberry and havana.
  • You will have leftover yarn to knit wrist warmers matching your shawl.

Possible substitution:

In the 4 ply Merinos d'Arles bundle 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.
