If you purchase 5 patterns from my Ravelry Store at the same time (add them all to your cart before you check out), the least expensive one will be free.

For millennia, migratory herds of Merino d’Arles sheep and their humans 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 new Merino d’Arles yarn, and pays tribute to the breed with a playful mosaic stitch pattern and contrast of summery and wintery hues.
