This pattern was originally published as Twisted’s contribution to the 2014 Rose City Yarn Crawl, February 27 - March 2, 2014 in Portland, Oregon.

Each shop’s pattern(s) will be available free with purchase at that shop during the Rose City Yarn Crawl. All patterns will also be available for download individually or as part of our 2014 eBooks: Neighborhood Knits & Crochets Too, Neighborhood Knits, Neighborhood Crochets.

Twisted’s neighborhood, Sullivan’s Gulch, is named after Timothy Sullivan, who was a world-class traveler until settling in Portland, building his homestead, and inspiring a neighborhood to be named after him. He met his wife, Margaret, in Tasmania in 1841. This shawlette seems the kind of thing a globe-trotting, practical 1800s woman would throw on to head out to tend to the chickens.
