The City of Calgary lies at the place where the prairies give way to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. To the east of the city lie the prairies, with a patchwork of farmer’s fields stretching as far as the eye can see. To the west of the city lies the Rocky Mountains, and the rolling foothills that lead up to them. This shawl brings together the colours and geography that surround Calgary, in a patchwork of fields and colours that evoke both the prairies and looking out from the city towards the mountains!
This design is a heart-shaped triangle shawl. This shaping means the shawl hugs you like a warm prairie day and is light and easy to wear because the shape makes the shawl stay on the shoulders. The patchwork is created through a simple use of intarsia, but if you prefer not to work intarsia you can simply make the shawl striped. It is finished with a contrast i-cord edging to stabilize and finish the bottom edge.
The shawl measures 81”/206cm from tip to tip, and 33”/84cm from center point to inner edge
