Your Mileage May Vary Shawl
The name comes from the edge trim which is a variation on a vintage pattern called “A mile a minute.” When I found the trim in a vintage book I thought it meant that it worked up very quickly until Kat told me that it's the name of a weed similar to bindweed. Its still a very quick trim and pattern to work – but maybe not quite breaking land speed records! It’s also a slight reference to the fact that short row crescents are about the hardest to calculate the yardage for when you are designing them.
This pattern is easily adapted to be larger or smaller, instructions are provided.
