Full of color and lace framed by a beautiful slipped stitch border, the Fractured Shawl takes its name from the geological term “fracture” in which the rock splits or has a fault which causes the layers to stagger on top of each other, causing a beautiful juxtaposition of sediment that exposes the striking beauty of a perpendicular line.

Using some very simple intarsia, lace, and color, the shawl is a fun knit and the end product is a fabulous piece of wearable art! So grab your needles and start knitting!

The pattern comes with a chart as well as written instructions! So whether you are a chart lover or a lover of the written form, both are here for whichever version you prefer!
