Distance is no barrier to creative collaboration — even if it’s 5190 Miles!

That’s how far it is from Portland, Oregon to Bonn, Germany, which makes it a fitting title for a shawl collaboration between Knit Purl PDX, Bumblebirch Yarns, and me.

The shell pattern evokes the urban landscape of roads, rivers, and bridges, and the two halves of this asymmetrical triangle shawl are inverted in color.

Streaks of each other’s color dart through each half — just how thoughts of one city might tug at your mind while you’re in another.

Knit this in the colors of your two favorite cities as a reminder that no matter how far apart they are, everything is interwoven.
