“Beside the falls of Nimrodel,
by water clear and cool,
her voice, like silver falling fell
into the shining pool”

Nimrodel is a cable and lace triangular shawl worked from the top down. The pattern can be easily customized by changing the number of repeats of Chart A. The pictured shawl uses approximately 700 yards of fingering weight yarn. 400 yards would make a shawlette size.

I knit to audio books a lot and was listening to Lord of the Rings, and trying to come up with something for my shawl exchange partner. She said her favorite colors were water tones, and the beautiful yarn from the yarn yard reminded me of cool water. So I tried to come up with a pattern that reminded me of water flowing over stones and this is what I came up with.
