High Street Shawl borrows many of the same techniques found in Eden Prairie, but with a different result. High Street is a garter stitch modular shawl in three to ten colors of fingering weight yarn. This is a great pattern for stash busting since the first six colors require 25 yards or less. You can probably find these in your stash. What more can you ask for? A fun knit, fairly quick and easy, no purling, and it busts some stash!

Neck edge width: approximately 52”/130cm
