On Sale
Added to cart
Endless cups of coffee, baskets of fries, milkshakes (with a sidecar), and breakfast all day. Inspired by the iconic 1950’s American diner, a shawl to knit up and keep the nostalgia going. 

A play on the motif of the diner booth and the interiors of your favorite hot rods; texture and color blocking to mimic the patterning and the tuck+roll stitching. A 3 skein fingering/lace weight project to knit from your stash!


The shawl begins with the center panel. Stitches are picked up and knit to work the side sections. Finished with i-cord throughout for a clean edge!

detailed, educational instructions!

We are inspired by vintage style from the 1950’s-1980’s, rockabilly & the revival, early punk & American hardcore music, and American hot rod culture.

And the knitwear that came with our favorite decades! Vintage patterns can often be sparse in information and very limited in sizing. We offer a much wider size range, and we are known for our attention to fit and detailed, educational instructions!

Our patterns provide thorough instruction with the conveniences of contemporary knitting; enjoy the process + the product!
