This shawl is part of a small collection of knits inspired by the women who came before me. My Grandmother crochets a lot and has told me stories of how her mother was an avid knitter and would often be found with needles in her hands. The design has the simplicity and practicality a country girl needs but with a bit of feminine flair. I never met her, but I can imagine this was the kind of woman my Great Grandmother was. This simple triangular shawl is versatile and can be worn many different ways, such as traditionally draped over your shoulders or kerchief style for plenty of warmth around your neck. The repeat pattern is easy to learn and memorize and great for lace beginners. This pattern includes both charted and written directions. There is also a matching hat pattern, called the Henny Hat. The worsted weight makes it a fairly quick knit and provides enough warmth for chilly days.

The wingspan measures approximately 53” and the height at the center spine about 23”. (Directions are given for increasing the size if you’d like a larger shawl.)

UPDATE: I offered the pattern for free for the first 24 hours, from 9 AM US EST on Wednesday March 4th to 9AM US EST on Thursday, March 5th. This offer has expired and the pattern is now back to it’s original price of $3. However, you can save $1 if you purchase it with the Henny Hat!
