FD-51 Kumasi

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

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.
