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. In remembrance of our friends and family
still living in Christchurch, a percentage of proceeds from pattern sales will be donated to the Red Cross - one of the
first response agencies who provided aid to families (including mine) after the quake.
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.
22st per 10cm in garter stitch (not critical - a fabric with drape is desirable).
350 yards of Fingering weight
I live in small town New Zealand, mum to 3 small (or not so small) girls, spending my time knitting small things.
