Cherry Stone has arisen out of several necessities and an ever-so teeny tiny yarn addiction. Like you, I have a stash full of lovely variegated yarns, but find it hard to pick patterns to use them in.

Cherry Stone is an asymmetric shawl, which showcases variegated yarn and is also a solution to several shawl knitting conundrums:
  • it makes use of a gorgeous skein of variegated yarn
  • it features a ‘picot-on-the-go’ edging without a lengthly picot cast off
  • the bold stripes are cleverly knitted without lots and lots of ends to weave in
  • it uses simple short rows, with no ‘wraps and turns’, to create an easy-to-wear longer, scarf-shape shawl
  • the short rows are closed using a row of contrasting bobbles, mirroring the bobble i-cord cast off
The pattern contains tips on completing the ‘picot-on-the-go’ edging, including a link to a YouTube tutorial and tips for blocking. It is fully tech-edited, and contains clear photographs, and a schematic.
