Inspired by a piece of Prairie-style stained glass, Eden Prairie is my interpretation of that style in a knitted fabric. The shaw 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 and 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!
Pattern includes a construction schematic and a coloring schematic. You can sample a color scheme before committing to any yarn.

I have been knitting, designing and surrounding myself with yarn for more years than I care to admit. More recently I made the decision to formally publish my designs. In my day job, I run the online yarn shop Whitknits.com.
