Dry Creek Shawl                                                  $5.00


The geometric components of this shawl are constucted with a multi-directional technique.  Two triangles of perpendicular garter ridges flank an eyelet center section reminiscent of a rocky creek bed.  This project includes a knitted cast on, short rows, double yarn-overs, make-one increases, a ssk bind off, and a single crochet edge.  It is knit in one piece with no picked-up stitches.  Although the shawl in the photo uses the same yarn throughout the project, the design affords the opportunity to experiment with different colors for each of the three sections.

Dimension:  approximately 65" long and 28" at center back.

Yarn:  580 yards worsted weight

Needles:  US 13 and US 10.5

Other:  stitch marker; 6mm/J crochet hook
