Eden Prairie

Inspired by a piece of Prairie-style stained glass, Eden Prairie is my interpretation of that style in a knitted fabric. The shawl is worked from the top down, but the construction method is unique. Starting with two separate triangles that are joined by a diamond, Eden Prairie grows by alternately working stripes on one side then the other. A simple 10-row modified intarsia border heightens the stained glass effect. Constructed entirely in garter stitch, not a purl in sight, Eden Prairie is wonderfully squishy!

The High Street Shawl is a beautiful related design, but even simpler to knit.

Size: 60” wide x 26” deep

Recommended yarn:
Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light, 100% superwash merino, 420 yards per skein, 1 skein each Oak (C1), Winter Wheat (C2), Onyx (BC) and Sequoia (C3). Actual yardage needed is approximately 365 yards each of C1 and C2, 175 yards of BC and 105 yards of C3.

Pattern assumes you can cast on, bind off and pick up stitches. All other techniques are fully explained.
