sur les toits d'Arles by Hélène Marcy

This triangular shawl deigned by Hélène Marcy is knitted on the bias. It starts with a few stitches from one point and is regularly increased on one side only. The stitches are chosen to obtain a look equally interesting on the reverse, which makes it possible to wrap it in lots of creative ways. It is big enough to generously cover shoulders or wrap around your neck like a big cowl.
