Texture, texture, and more texture. Add stripes, eyelet detailing, and an i-cord bind off for a clean finish and East Coast Charm is just the snuggliest of shawls you will knit. The generous size allows you to style it so many ways. Wear it with an elegant detail such as a shawl pin, broach, or button to give it a more personalized feel. Or go casual and simply drape it around your shoulders.

Whether you live on the east coast, visit often, or wish to get there someday you will surely enjoy wrapping yourself in this charming and cozy reminder of such a beautiful and dynamic place. To learn more about the inspiration behind the design, visit my blog.
