Stratum Shawl


Stratum Shawl

The stratum shawl is created by a series of layers of yarn. Each stratum, or layer, adds something special to the shawl.

The rectangular shawl is worked from one short diagonal edge to the opposite side. The size is completely adjustable depending on your preferences and yarn quantities. Stratum has been tested with yarn of several different weights.

Stratum can also be a great stash buster project where you use a different color for each stripe.

Level: Easy The pattern has two special decrease stitches and features an easy repeat. There is a detailed picture tutorial.

Size: Adjustable. Information is included to change the width of the pattern. The length can be adjusted by working more or fewer pattern repeats.

  • Small: Approximately 76” long and 14” deep, with a 18” diagonal edge.
  • Large: Approximately 91” long and 20.5” deep, with a 26.5” diagonal edge.
