Pattern Description:

Quartzite is a chic crescent shaped shawl knit top-down with simple repeats and evenly spaced garter ridges creating the appearance of preserved layers of sandstone. It is finished with a knitted-on border that mimics the movements deep within the earth that cause sandstone to convert to quartzite over very long periods of time. Quartzite is as sophisticated to wear as it is tranquil to knit!
