When I studied abroad in London years ago, my dorm room window overlooked Finchley Road. It’s by no means the most famous or the most historic street in London, but I walked down it everyday to catch a bus or get to the tube station or to go to the pub with my friends, and I still associate it with a sense of adventure and excitement. My time in London set the stage for later travels and my roommate from that semester is still one of my dearest friends. A few months there grew into much larger part of my life. Like my time in London, the Finchley Road Shawl starts small, then branches out wider and wider. Since it is worked to size, gauge is not vital and virtually any cozy yarn that shows off cables well would work. The pattern is written as well as charted, and of course I’m always available for support if you have questions about it. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic knitting (knit, purl, etc.); cables; M1 increases GAUGE 26 sts x 28 rows = 4” (10 cm) in stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 62" (157.5 cm) long x 22" (56 cm) deep
