Seine is part of the Mix & Match – Rivers collection. The other patterns in the collection are Elbe and Tiber. All these shawls can be knitted on their own, just as they are. But if you have the entire collection, you can also mix and match by combining the body and border sections from the other patterns in the collection. All the shawls have a textured body and a simple lace border, and they are interchangeable. You can mix any of the 3 textured body sections with any of the 3 lace borders. With the 3 patterns of the Mix & Match – Rivers collection, you get 9 different shawls! All the math is done for you, so all you need to do is choose your combo of body and border and simply follow the instructions. Get the collection here.

Understated simplicity at its best, Seine is a beautiful shawl that’s enjoyable to knit. This asymmetric triangle shawl, knitted on the bias, has two parts. The body is a combination of garter stitch and stockinette stripes, for textural interest. And the border has a delicate quatrefoil eyelet pattern. The look is very modern and light.

The pattern has both written and charted instructions.

Two skeins of Julie Asselin Fino (75% Merino, 15% Cashmere, 10% Silk; 366 m / 400 yds per 115 g.) Shown in colourway Birch.

Or approximately 681 m / 745 yds of similar fingering weight yarn.

Size 4 mm / US 6 circular needle. Always adjust needle size to obtain pattern gauge. Gauge affects finished size and the amount of yarn needed.

Shawl is worked flat but I recommend using a 100 cm / 40 inch circular needle to accommodate the growing number of stitches.
