This pattern is part of the Slouches Collection.

Stone Fences uses three different yarns in changing combinations to form interlocking stripes, with a look reminiscent of dry stone walls. Yarns are mixed and worked solo in the same row, giving an intarsia effect without the intarsia, while subtle shaping provides a nice fit. Stone Fences is worked flat and seamed at the back; pattern instructions are written only, and include instructions for adjusting the circumference. The ‘About the yarns’ section describes the structure and properties of the yarns used in the sample; use the suggested yarns or make your own mix!

I designed Stone Fences to use the Cima and Silk Cloud left over from Slouch 1 and Slouch 2. I used almost all of the Cima and most of the Silk Cloud, so if you’re doing the same, you may need a bit extra of at least one of those yarns. For a different look, you could use the leftover Pebble instead of Cima or Silk Cloud for part of the cowl, or you could play around with your own combination of textures and colours.
