Whether you live on the east coast, visit often, or wish to get there someday you will surely enjoy wrapping yourself in this charming and cozy reminder of such a beautiful and dynamic place.

For one of the snuggliest shawls you will ever knit you will create a beautiful inset stripe detail, a lace insert using eyelets, and an i-cord bind off for a clean finish. The generous size allows you to style it so many ways. Wear it with an elegant detail such as a shawl pin, broach, or button to give it a more personalized feel. Or go casual and simply drape it around your shoulders. The pattern includes a chart and schematic to provide helpful visual cues to supplement the written instructions.
