Inspired by a piece of Prairie-style stained glass, Eden Prairie is my interpretation of that style in a knitted fabric. The shaw is worked from the top down, but the construction method is unique. Starting with two separate triangles that are joined by a diamond, Eden Prairie grows by alternately working stripes on one side and then the other. A simple 10-row modified intarsia border heightens the stained glass effect. Constructed entirely in garter stitch, not a purl in sight, Eden Prairie is wonderfully squishy! Pattern includes a construction schematic and a coloring schematic. You can sample a color scheme before committing to any yarn.

I learned to knit at the tender age of eight, and there was no stopping me. I spent decades knitting all kinds of garments for family and close friends. In 2005, I opened the online yarn shop, and more recently started publishing my own patterns. Please contact me with any questions. Thank you!
