The Stepping Stones Shawl was designed a couple of years ago for the knit.purl publication asking to interpret a 'water' theme in stitches and design features. I had a vague idea at that time circling around waves and stepping stones set through a stream that, after playing around with swatches to figure out how they could fit together, became this shawl.
Stepping Stones is a half-rectangle shaped shawl with a chain of large eyelets running along its spine. The eyelets both shape it and create a spectacular detail on the smooth stockinette ground. The shawl is trimmed with a band of wave stitch to soften the bold look. It is knitted using 4 skeins of DK weight Manos del Uruguay silk blend and you'll need just under 550 m / 600 yds of DK weight yarn that knits to the specified tension if you'd like to substitute it.
Now that the rights to publish have reverted back to me I am very happy to be able to offer it as a direct PDF on Ravelry and LoveKnitting.com Click on photos for extra pattern info on Ravelry.
