Meandering three stories above the streets of Manhattan is the newly opened High Line park. Having visited the park on a number of occasions (my kids' band rehearses in the neighborhood) I was inspired to design a shawl by its linear paths and abundant wild flowers.
High Line is knit using Blue Sky Alpaca's Worsted Hand Dyes. I will warn you that this yarn is much heavier than worsted weight and when choosing a yarn you should look for chunky or bulky weight to get the look and scale of the shawl in the photos.
Worked at a gauge of 10 sts = 4"(10cm) on US 15(10mm) needles this shawl knits up very quickly. It is perfect for gift knitting or as a little bit of indulgence for yourself.
You'll find the pattern here on Ravelry.
