Definition: stra•tig•ra•phy |strāˈtigˈrәˈfē|
The analysis of the order and position of layers of strata related to a geological time and archaeological remains.

Coming out of the Madelinetosh MadMay 2013 challenge to design and knit an original item, Stratigraphy is a multi colored shawl that gets it’s shaping from the simplest form of short rows and eyelet lace stripes stacked and divided with a contrasting reverse stockinette welt stripe.

Yarn Requirements:
Madelinetosh Pashmina, 110g/360yds in three colors:
C1: Welts & I-cord edging, approx 240 yards (180 sm size), shown in Tern
C2: Primary stripes, approx 235 yards (130 sm size), shown in Silver Fox
C3: Secondary stripes, approx 190 yards (100 sm size), shown in Bloomsbury

Colors work best to have C1 as a high contrast to C2 and C3.
