The Stratia by Erin Kurup is a parallelogram shaped shawl named after the distinct layers (strata) seen in rock when cut along the cross section. Worked in two pieces, Stratia starts with a triangle shawl shape and then is extended along one edge on the bias. Put that half on hold and do the same thing once more before joining them in the center with a three needle bind off!
From Erin's description of the Stratia Wrap on Ravelry: Intricate doesn’t have to mean complicated. Stratia’s single lace motif plus rows of garter and stockinette stitch create the illusion of a piece that appears more complex than it really is. Repetition and intuitive lace make it easy to slip into a knitting groove, while the offbeat construction keeps things interesting. Plus, the layered structure presents plenty of leeway for color play. Solids, tonals, and lightly speckled or variegated colorways will show the lace off most clearly, but don’t let that stop you from getting creative!
This listing is for the Three-color version of the Stratia Wrap with the colors Lithium, Carbon, and Neon for you to put together however you choose. Check out the projects on Ravelry for the Stratia Wrap, as there are tons of neat combinations!
Included are my modifications for the Three-color version! In this sample I used approximately 75-80g of each color (about 3/4 of each skein). Hopefully the pictures here give you an idea of how the three-color version works up-- I've been unable to take it out for a proper photoshoot to get pictures of the whole thing stretched out.
What's included: The three color Stratia Wrap yarn kit includes three skeins of Neutron Fingering (60% superwash Merino/20% Yak/20% Silk - 400 yards/100) in three coordinating colors for you to play with however you choose. Mary's three color sample uses Lithium as color A, Carbon as color B (the Contrast Color in the two color version) and Neon as color C. Please keep in mind that your needle choice and gauge will affect how much yarn is needed for your project-- for best results, swatch until you have a blocked swatch that matches the pattern's listed gauge.
Pattern not included-- please visit Ravelry or Erin's website and support her directly.
