Special Patterns

Margaret Sullivan’s Shawlette (knit)
by Shannon Squire
Twisted’s neighborhood, Sullivan’s Gulch, is named after Timothy Sullivan, who was a world-class traveler until settling in Portland, building his homestead, and inspiring a neighborhood to be named after him. He met his wife, Margaret, in Tasmania in 1841. This shawlette seems the kind of thing a globe-trotting, practical 1800s woman would throw on to head out to tend to the chickens.

  Sullivan’s Spring Shawlette (crochet)
by Shannon Squire
Sullivan’s Spring was located near Timothy and Margaret’s cabin and became a popular site for picnickers. A mural depicting this bucolic scene appears on the outside back wall of the pub at 1700 NE Broadway. This granny circle crocheted shawlette would be the perfect thing to throw on when heading for a picnic in your favorite Portland neighborhood.
