The Meg Shawl is one of a series of four shawls each based on one of the four main characters in the story Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. The colours of the shawls are based on the little books that each girl receives for Christmas at the start of the second chapter of the book.

You can make this shawl larger or smaller by adding more or less repeats.

You will need 2 skeins of yarn for the main body of the shawl. I used 2 skeins of Cascade Heritage Sock in the Moss colour. You will also need small amounts of a very fine thread or other coloured yarn to work some of the border details.

Gauge and tension are not important for this project.

US conversions are included within this pattern.

This pattern is ideal for a beginner who is ready to advance further and try some new things.

The shawls for the other characters from the story are called the Beth Shawl, Amy Shawl and Jo Shawl. These are available in my Ravelry Shop.
