Few places on earth have the vintage trendy feel of downtown LA. Famous sights from movies and memorable images of the City of Angels. Locals and visitors alike will recognize the iconic Angels Flight funicular across from the Grand Central Market.

The creative slipped stitch patterning mimics the path of the train on its tracks up the hill. For extra interest, use a contrast color for your toes, cuffs and pin-striping. Notes are included for 2 color version throughout the pattern.
