Stone Ridge Shawl                                                 $5.00


 

Inspiration for this design is derived from the sense of order that results from stacked stones that highlight the natural contours of a rural landscape.  This shawl includes three easy to remember stitch patterns.  The orderly eyelet edge borders a gently curved garter stitch main section.  This “field” of garter fabric is further contained by a smooth I-cord edge.  Knit in rows from tip to tip, increases and decreases not only shape the main body but also create a subtle scalloped edge in the eyelet section.  This method of construction allows for yarn choice flexibility.  Upon reaching the middle, use 51% of the yarn to complete the entire decrease section.  Also choose a needle size that is large enough to achieve open eyelets and a drapey fabric.
