This pattern was designed for the first stop of the Winter 2022 Good Vibes Yarn Tour. The pattern will be available to the public in November 2022.

For more information about the Good Vibes Tour, sign up for our newsletter.

The sample was knit with two contrasting skeins of Sister Ananse Zebra DK. These colors (Bronzeville and Cooler by the Lake) were dyed exclusively for the Good Vibes Yarn Tour. I look forward to seeing what other combinations you come up with.

This design is inspired by the Bronzeville neighborhood, the center of African-American history on Chicago’s South Side. Also known as the Black Metropolis, Bronzeville is one of the most important destinations of the Great Migration and home to Ida B. Wells, Gwendolyn Brooks, Louis Armstrong, Quincy Jones, Muddy Waters, and more.

As you travel through your knitting pattern, I hope you will take time to learn more about the Black history that might be new to you.
