Last May, I was fortunate enough to leave the United States for the first time in my life and travel to the UK.

What most people do not know about me is that I am a huge Tudor nerd. I love researching everything about the Tudor monarchy. If I am not knitting, I am reading books about it. Currently, I am reading “The Six Wives of Henry the VIII”, which I picked up on my trip back to the UK, this past November. Anyway, my flight in to the UK in May, happened to fall on the Anniversary of the death of Anne Boleyn. Her story of humble beginnings and rise to power, is one I am particularly interested in, so of course I booked my hotel directly across from the Tower of London. I went the next day, to the chapel where she is buried inside the Tower walls, and had a moment to take it all in. Instantly, I knew I wanted to begin a collection inspired by my past and upcoming visits to London, and the Tudors. That day in May when I visited the Tower and Anne’s resting place, was particularly foggy, and overcast…. hence ‘London Fog’. This is pattern No. 1 of that collection.

The shawl center section is worked from the CO corner, out, working an icord edge in the MC on the right side of the work, and increasing on the left RS of the work. The shawl is then decreased on the left RS of the work to create the triangular shape, while continuing to work the icord edge on the right side of the shawl. Stitches are then picked up on the RS of the work along the entire triangular edge of the shawl, where a removable stitch marker is placed on the center stitch to designate the center increase spine of the shawl. The shawl is continued by working in the same manner as a traditional triangular shawl; increasing on certain rows on both the first and very last brioche stitches, as well as the center stitch (designated by the removable stitch marker). Lastly, the entire shawl is bound off with an icord edge in the MC.
