There’s something about New York City that lends itself beautifully to inspiration. Drawing on motifs from skyscrapers and bold billboards in Times Square, the Chrysler Arch Shawl, designed by Heidi Gustad, combines short rows, stranded colorwork, and two-colour brioche rib to create a finished object worthy of the Big Apple.
Finished measurements: 6-6.5" wide by 58" length per wedge

According to Encyclopaedia Brittanica, "Broadway, New York City [is a] thoroughfare that traverses the length of Manhattan, near the middle of which are clustered the theatres that have long made it the foremost showcase of commercial stage entertainment in the United States. The term Broadway is virtually synonymous with American theatrical activity." Capturing the colours was a fun and intriguing dye session for us where we drew inspiration from our photo.
