The Rockslide Shawl is a fully reversible lace shawl. It uses old Shetland motifs to create an airy shawl with rolling river rocks on the body of the shawl, and a more solid row of diamonds separating the body from the edging with peaks and valleys.This versatile shawl can be worn as a lacy accessory with an evening gown, or with jeans and a top for a casual look. There’s no need to worry about having the “right side” showing, as the shawl is completely reversible.

Rockslide is worked in several different directions. It starts with a provisional cast-on for the body. Then stitches are picked up for the diamond border, and the shawl is finished with a knit on edging.

The pattern is charted.
