The shawl is inspired by the description of the mallorn trees in JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. “There are no trees like the trees of
that land. For in the autumn their leaves fall not, but turn to gold. Not till the spring comes and the new green opens do they fall. Then the boughs are laden with golden blossom in clusters like a cherry; and the floor of the wood is golden, and golden is the roof, and its pillars are of silver, for the bark of the trees is smooth and grey.”

The pattern contains directions for both the scarf and shawl.

This pattern has been tech edited and knit tested.
