Designed by: Jill Zielinski


Knit on the bias, Townline is a fingering weight asymmetrical triangular shawl. Thoughtful increases create a shape that is perfect for wrapping around your neck. Sections of surprisingly simple mosaic knitting are framed with meditative and relaxing garter stitch. A picot bind-off completes the shawl edge, mimicking the mosaic dot work. Designed in North Bay Fiber Elemental Fingering, this 100% cormo base creates a beautiful fabric that will last for years to come!
