Product details

This design is inspired by the TTC, Toronto’s transit system, which is loved and despised in equal measure.

Riders of the city’s famous streetcar lines are very familiar with the concept of the “Short Turn” – when a vehicle goes off route sooner than anticipated, necessitating a detour and sometimes even a change of vehicle and line. This cable pattern is inspired by the streetcar routes around the city, and the various turns and changes that you experience along your journey – some anticipated, some not. It’s based on a 2 x 2 ribbing, but veers off and meanders here and there, somewhat unpredictably, providing interesting detours and crosses of the tracks. There’s also a plain section, worked only in reverse stockinette, denoting the not-insignificant areas of the city that aren’t well serviced by the TTC – and also, handily, solving the sizing issue.

As always, instructions are written to be worked on any needle configuration: DPNs, magic loop, 2 circulars, Flexiflips, you name it...
