Hey, that looks exactly like The Lonely Tree Shawl pattern

Yep, pretty much exactly! The only difference with this one is that it’s got a much more intuitive chart, that can be repeated forever (or until you run out of yarn). This version can be more easily modified to make a huge shawl, out of any weight yarn that you choose! Oh, and the leaves along the spine and sides of the shawl are symmetrical, which is different than the original Lonely Tree.

The original Lonely Tree Shawl was charted, and it wasn’t very easily modifyable to make it larger - which is why the Elder Tree was made! Have a couple balls of lace weight yarn that you want to use up? Like The Lonely Tree Shawl? Well, The Elder Tree Shawl is here to help.

The Elder Tree Shawl is another lovely Fall weather leaves shawl knit in tweedy worsted weight Loden yarn. A perfect edition to any autumn wardrobe. It’s a simple lace knit that would be good for intermediate level knitters who are comfortable with knitting, purling, and working yarn overs.

66” by 33”
chart b repeats 8 times in this version - but you can repeat it for as long as you’d like.

If you’re wondering what the Make 1 is in the pattern you can take a look I wrote a blog post with a youtube video about it.

I want to thank my lovely models woolcamera and ady-lady! You guys are both awesome!

As with all my paid patterns, if you are low on funds please feel free to send me a message and I will gift the pattern to you. It might take me a while, but I’m happy to do that.
