Short rows, lace, and simple colorwork combine in this homage to big cities everywhere, with their sleek modern sky scrapers juxtaposed next to their older, more opulent architecture. Buildings dance across the top of this shawl while the foundations of the city are firmly rooted in the older lace patterns across the bottom edging. Maybe it’s New York City, maybe Chicago, Boston, Paris, or London. Maybe Godzilla’s Tokyo, Batman’s Gotham City, or Superman’s Metropolis. Whatever your color choices or the city they evoke for you this textured shawl will keep out the chill from San Francisco’s foggy bay to the whipping winds at the top of Paris’ Eiffel Tower

Yardage listed above should be divided between 2 colors as follows: Color A (dark grey in sample) 500 yards, Color B (blue in sample) 260 yards.
