It is time for a virtual road trip! Enjoy historical markers and museums as you vicariously travel and explore while knitting this fun shawl! Choose 3 skeins of fingering weight yarn, size 5 and 4 needles, and have fun!

I originally designed this as a mystery knit along for the Fox Valley Knitters Guild in St. Charles, Illinois. Little detours and car damage have all been worked out. But, until it is all polished and while we are all staying safe at home, I am sharing this pattern for free!

Stay home, save lives, knit on and smile!

Your gauge may vary and so will the size. Adjust your needle size to achieve a fabric you like! If you are using yarn from your stash, you can easily rearrange your colors as you travel along.

I recommend 250 to 300 yards of each.
Color A = Dark
Color B = a medium Pop
Color C = Light (you may like a tonal, tweed or lightly variegated
