Rookwood

Rookwood is a crescent shaped shawl, worked from the bottom up. The bottom edge has lace, garter stitch, and twisted rib. The body of the shawl is worked in garter stitch with simple short rows.

The pattern is a collaboration with Destination Yarn. Jeanne dyed the yarn in colors found in pieces from the iconic Cincinnati company, Rookwood Pottery. For the design, I wanted to use stitch patterns that mimicked the curves and lines found in many Rookwood pieces. I swatched a few things, played around with colorwork, and in a Japanese stitch dictionary found this pattern with its twists and curves. I made a few simple modifications and the pattern quickly took shape.

The pattern is available for $6.00 on Ravelry and is also available as a kit from Destination Yarn.
