Pattern Description:

Andrew Vivian with his cousin, Richard Trevithick was one of the first inventors of the steam locomotive. Vivian financed the production of the first steam carriage in March 1802.

The Vivian Travel Shawl celebrates the mystery and wonder of our steam-powered trains. The stripe pattern reminds some of the billowing smoke of the engine as it travels the land.

As the shawl grows from the neck down, the increase section mimics the endless railroad tracks that traverse through the country side.

The lace edging replicates the universal sign of a railroad crossing while the very loops of the edging are inspired by the train's wheels.

This shawl can also be knitted in a solid color, relying on the unique texture of the pattern to tell the story of the shawl. Enjoy!
