La Crau [Melanie Berg]
For millennia, migratory herds of Merino d’Arles sheep and their shepherds 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.
La Crau by Melanie Berg is an asymmetrical triangle shawl is knit in Rosy Green Wool’s Merino d’Arles yarn and pays tribute to the breed with a playful mosaic stitch pattern and contrast of summery and wintery hues.
