This one was designed for a friend whose birthday stone is the topaz and whose favorite color is this lovely deep fuschia. I just couldn't resist. Knit all in one piece, the body of the shawl is worked "top-down", then the cable/lace border is knit sideways along the body, connecting to the body as you go. NO SEAMING! Yeah! I hope you all like it.
NOTE: Only individual patterns are currently available through Craftsy.
This shawl is the second in a new four-shawl collection named after different precious stones. Currently the shawl collection is only available for purchase through Ravelry (soon it will be available on my blog as well). The four patterns will be released between January and March 2013. You may purchase the collection at any time, and if you do, you will receive automatic updates as the new shawls are released after beng tested. You may purchase a pattern individually, but please keep in mind that if you buy the patterns individually they will be $4.50 each, you will not get discounts or credits given towards the eBook purchase price after purchasing individual patterns.
This and all of the other patterns in the collection will include both written and charted instructions.
6 stitches and 8 rows = 1 inch in stockinette

I've been crafting since forever, knitting fanatically since about 2006 and designing since 2008. When not knitting, I teach university students about primates and play with my horses.
