Cobblestone is an asymmetric triangular shawl knitted on the bias in fingering/4 ply yarn. Stockinette stitch sections are mixed with eyelet and broken rib sections to create a shawl with textural interest and a soft fabric that drapes beautifully.

The shawl is worked in one piece from the top right corner across and downwards. Two increases at the beginning and one decrease at the end of every right side row creates an asymmetric triangular shape.

Yarn Requirements
Approximately 372 yards/340 metres of fingering/4 ply yarn.
