This pattern is designed for use with 3 skeins of our Superwash Dewy Dk yarn in colorway: Cocoa Black. Choose any color you like, though. Gauge is critical on this pattern and the sample used 748 of 750 yards. If in doubt, order a 4th skein just to be safe.

You’ll need US Size 7 (4.50 mm) needles.

Notes From the Designer:

•Everyone has that favorite place where they hang out. Maybe yours is where you read, knit, or enjoy a cup of joe. I do all of the above at a coffee shop on West King Street, hence the name of this pattern.

•Enjoy the shifting textures and simple lace while you knit your own West King Shawl and wear it to all of your favorite haunts!

•An intermediate pattern you’re going to love wearing. The shape wraps perfectly around your shoulders.

Errata: Line 19 of the right wing section should read: K2, (p2tog, yo) to 1 st before m, p2, p to last 2 sts, k2. (The last k2 for the garter edge was missing.

In the decrease section for the left wing, work the Hedgerow pattern 3 times instead of 1, then work row 1 once more.
