Victoria because I couldn’t make myself name a shawl British Columbia, and Victoria is the capital city of British Colombia. It is situated on Vancouver Island, where they have a lot of cougars. With the massive amount of large cat’s paws on this shawl, I found that very fitting. Furthermore, the frilly edge pattern sort of resembles foamy waters of a coastline.

The name also makes me think of Victoria Falls, a pretty woman, victory, a rav friend mentioned victorian lace, and the shawl is even constructed like 3 V’s.

The pattern is 4 pages long and the repeats are marked with colour, so you need to either print your copy in colour or mark the repeat on your paper copy with a highlighter or the like.
