In 2016, my husband and I took a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, the extreme South West tip of North America. Two days after returning home, we left on a road trip to L’Anse Aux Meadows, Newfoundland, Canada; the opposite corner of the North American continent. Each color in this pullover represents a place we visited in this short span of time. Cabo at the top, Newfoundland at the bottom. The colorwork is suitable for a knitter new to two-color knitting, and the only finishing is underarm grafts and weaving in ends. Perfect for knitting on your own round trip!
