Tantalize your taste buds and finger tips! Travel to Toronto’s Distillery District to discover the inspiration behind Bicerin shawl. Rich chocolate wafts down the cobblestoned pedestrian thorough fare past the Soulpepper theatre company, artist studios, galleries, restaurants, and shops. Soma Chocolate Maker’s enticing aromas invite you to sit, sip, and knit while they transform the rich decadence of the cocoa bean into edibles and drinks alike. After much experimentation, I recreated the delectable drink while knitting with cocoa and cream colored yarn. When worn over a black shirt you too can enjoy the warmth of a Bicerin both in a cup and wrapped around your shoulders.

This quick knit makes a great last minute Father’s Day present!

This easy level tech edited pattern comes with two shawl variations as well as the Bicerin drink recipe. Knit entirely in Garter Stitch with elongated stitch accent sections, the finished shawl works for both men and women.

Knit all the stitches! Bicerin is completely purl-less. Great for both the men and the women in your life, the tassels and cables of Version A add a more feminine touch, whereas the straight knitting of Version B lends a gender neutral appearance.
