The Two Bridges Shawl is a crescent shaped shawl that features alternating sections of garter stitch, lace, and short row wedges. This shawl was named after the neighborhood that surrounds the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges in New York. The two yarn bases used in this design represents these two iconic bridges.

Fingering and lace weights are used to create a delightful contrast throughout the shawl. This shawl was designed to maximize the yardage of each skein.
