This semi-circular shawl is knit from the back neck to the bottom hem. The shawl is shaped with the use of increases (both M1s and YOs). The bottom hem is finished with a picot and eyelet border. It is designed to utilize one Wooly Wonka Transitionals Pack and one tonal-dyed yarn, but could be knit with any fingering weight/sock weight yarns. You will need approximately 375 yards of the main color and 400 yards of contrast color(s).

The shawl is named for one of the fashionable 1960s Mod-Look shops in the Carnaby Street area of London. The shawl is also part of the 7-piece Carnaby Street Collection, available as an ebook.
