This pattern was originally published as Twisted’s contribution to the 2017 Rose City Yarn Crawl, March 2 – 5, 2017 in Portland, Oregon.
In Portland, if you want to brunch at one of the city’s hot spots, you’ll need to queue up well in advance. In fact, waiting in line for brunch is often more of an event than the meal itself!
