Lycaon was born as an impromptu sketch in my diary. A wish to wrap myself in a fringed (or maybe not) bohemian looking shawl, with graphical features, that would be the perfect piece to wear during fall. A thick and enveloping accessory. That’s why when Nathalie from Woolissime offered me a yarn collaboration, this design appeared as the perfect idea.


Lycaon is a triangular shaped shawl, knit in garter stitch, from the tip to the upper edge and which features vertical lines. I chose to offer a variety of 2 possibilities on how to work this design, while keeping the same gauge:

  • A smaller version without fringe, using a combination of two yarns, merino and mohair, for a squishy and comfy.
  • A larger fringed version, knit out of organic merino, a delicious swelling fiber, which is perfect for highlighting the beauty of the vertical lines.
