Wood, Stone, Straw & Bone is worked flat from the top center out, increasing each right side row to gradually form a triangular shape. The size of the shawl can be easily adjusted by working more or less rows of the main color sections. Gauge is not crucial for this project, but it will affect the finished measurements and yardage used.
This shawl was inspired by the colors of wood, stone, straw, & bone- colors that are a reminder of nature's perpetual beauty and of our own transient presence on this earth.
