Minnesota Connection Wrap


A prize winning wrap from a collaboration with the Minnesota Knitter’s Guild. No fussing with shawl

ends and styling. Just pull it over your head and go!


About 30 years ago, the Minnesota Knitter’s Guild Yarnover event was annually held at St. Catherine’s University in St. Paul, Minnesota. I have fond memories of the people, the classes, the market, as well as the beautiful old campus. Knitters are interconnected by a common language and love of the
craft and this twisted “shawl,” with connecting cables and intersecting lattice stitches, symbolizes knitters in Minnesota as well as worldwide. I also realize the limited time knitters have today, as everyone is busy and rushing about, a DK weight shawl is the perfect project for knitters on the go.
