Midnight in Berlin has a free Row Map included, which makes knitting more accessible for chemo therapy patients and others who struggle with their concentration. Find out more about Row Maps here.

As I was walking the streets of Berlin while teaching at the Berlin Knits Festival 2017, I couldn’t help but imagine this asymmetrical triangle shawl.

The basketweave mosaic section blends perfectly into garter stitch stripes, with a striking pattern combination reminiscent of Berlin’s cobbled pedestrian plazas and neat rows of buildings.

Knitting it with bold colors of Caravan by Crave Yarn (a yummy blend of merino, cashmere, camel and silk) makes it quite the eye-catcher!
