The final installment of the inaugural year of the Colors of 614 Club brings us to The Short North. Known for its colorful arts and culture, the Short North area, just north of downtown on High Street, boasts one of the most successful revitalization projects in Central Ohio. All along High Street, you will find large steel arches complete with color changing fiber optic lights. Reminiscent of a century past, these arches have given Columbus back the nickname of “Arch City.”

The striking color inspiration image highlights the arches from the north, on High Street, facing downtown just as a huge storm was rolling into town at sunset. Arch City Shawl was inspired by the view as you head into town from the Ohio State University campus. The Cross Bar stitch pattern and yarn overs below mimic the arches that span High Street. This crescent shaped shawl uses a needleless cable/drop stitch technique that is perfect for an adventurous beginner/ intermediate knitter.
