Skill Level:

little skill level requirement Novice

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • basic increase/decrease stitches (e.g yo, kfb, k2tog), Edging is written and charted

Pattern Description:

Faultline was named for the devastating earthquake which struck Christchurch, New Zealand on February 22, 2011 -
my hometown at the time. Six months on and the city is still rocked by aftershocks (more than 4000 at the time
of writing), while the slow process of cleaning up and rebuilding continues.

Faultline combines all my favourite elements for knitting shawls: -

knit sideways so no long rows!
squishy garter stitch
a shallow wrappable shape
an easy lace pattern edge

Faultline is also totally reversible for maximum versatility. Made from just 320m/350yd of fingering/sock yarn it is a perfect pattern for that special skein of hand-dyed yarn.

Difficulty: Easy.


22st per 10cm in garter stitch (not critical - a fabric with drape is desirable).


  • 4mm 60cm circular needle, 320m or more of fingering/4ply weight knitting yarn,

You Will Also Need:

  • 1 st marker

Suggested yarn:

350 yards of Fingering weight
