In special collaboration with Bérangère Cailliau, we are proud to present this splendid design: the Salouen shawl.
This shawl is worked laterally in brioche stitch, combining a series of increases and decreases to create transverse, moving and flowing lines. Made with the DK PURE from Louise Robert Yarns collection, this shawl will keep you warm in all occasions!
Salouen (Salween in english) is a Southeast Asian river flowing from the Tibetan Plateau south into the Andaman Sea. Throughout most of its course, it runs swiftly through rugged mountain canyons. Its basin, narrow and sparsely populated, is characterized by a very rich biodiversity that is now threatened by the construction projects of numerous hydroelectric dams that disrupt the ecosystem.
