The patterns and textures found in rocks and stones are infinitely intriguing and serve as an endless source of inspiration to art. The inspiration to this design are Synclines, which are folds of rock layers that slope upward on both sides of a common low point.

This shawl uses an asymmetric construction that starts with a small cast on and is increased along one edge. The body of the shawl uses a 2-color slip stitch pattern in the bias. Stripes of mesh stitches are used for the border. The two stitch patterns approximate the look of syncline folds.
The result is a visually pleasing and stylish accessory.
The slip stitching makes for a thick warm fabric and the long leading edge of the shawl makes it easy to wrap around a couple times and keeps the shawl snug around the neck.
