Sugar Creek is a fast 90-mile river, edged with sugar maples, and is generally thought to be the most beautiful stream in Indiana. Mimicking its namesake’s current, the Sugar Creek Shawl is a top down triangle, knit with waves of texture that hit against coastal garter bands with a clean I-cord edge. Beautiful worked in 1 color or 2, and with solid or painted yarns.
