Inspired by a piece of Prairie-style stained glass, Eden Prairie is my interpretation of that style in a knitted fabric. The shawl 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 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!

If anyone is put off by the idea of intarsia, please look at AgileKnitter’s Eden Prairie (second picture from top). She simplified the shawl by leaving out all the intarsia. I think it’s lovely!
