The Alluvial Plains shawl draws its inspiration from the gentle sedimentary slopes formed over time by streams. It’s very simple garter stitch construction and undulating design invites the knitter to play and create her/his own one-of-a-kind piece using as much or little color variation as desired.

The Shawl is created by knitting short rows (wrap and turns) through out. It has pictorials to help you throughout the construction. A beginner can easily knit the shawl. Once blocked it measures 100 in. length and 20-22 in. width, but can easily be blocked with less length or more width.

One full skein of Color A- 400 yds/ 100 gm
Half a skein of color B- 200 yds/ 50 gm
Half a skein of color C- 200 yds/ 50gm

The Shawl is completely reversible. Once completed it can be worn on either side.

On pg. 10, Color B:
You will be building up the middle of the shawl and avoiding the tips on both sides. Like zig zagging back and forth.
Row 4, instructs to knit 15 sts. from the last wrap and turn. A suggestion would be the following. Work Row 3 and after the wrap and turn where you will turn your work. Knit 15 sts. mark that stitch with a locking marker to remind you that that particular stitch is the 15th st. from the wrap and turn you just knitting. It will be the stitch you will W&T on the next row on the opposite side. I hope this helps. You cam always email me for help. Thank you very much
