Fiber Dreams 51 Kumasi PDF

Because of the color of this yarn, when searching for a pattern name I was irresistibly drawn toward chocolate, and regions that grow it. Kumasi is a city in Ghana, in western Africa’s rain forest region. And cocoa is one of the city’s largest exports.

The shawl is knit from a provisional cast on in the center toward the outer edge. Stitches are then picked up from the center, and worked in the opposite direction, resulting in a shawl whose sides mirror each other.

This pattern is a PDF download.
