The Myrtle Creek Shawl is named for a creek and city in Oregon where the lovely Oregon myrtle grows. Though the city is a small one, it boasts a lovely main street and is also known as the “gateway to the 100 valleys of the Umpqua.” The rippling greens and blues of the shawl evoke the gentle curves of the rivers, the brilliant trees of the area, and the many bridges that may be found in the area.

This pattern is meant for adventurous novice knitters to experienced knitters and all those in-between. Please read the entire pattern before beginning.
