Calling all Harry Potter fans! Come and celebrate your love of the Potterverse with this new shawl design inspired by and dedicated to Sybill Trelawney, the wonderfully wacky Professor at our beloved Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Given that Professor Sybill Trelawney is a classic Seer Divination Witch whose moods, prophecies and ideas vary wildly (as opposed to other witches like Hermione), I chose a triangular shape and random colored stripes to represent her dynamic and unpredictable personality. Having said that, this shawl ends with a strong definitive i-cord bind off, which represents the stability of Hogwarts, because after all, Trelawney would crumble without the structure of Hogwarts to rely on. The multi-colored tassels are a tribute to her zany habit of draping herself in curtains.

In terms of the yarn and colors: I chose these shades from La Bien Aimee (San Tokki and Rust) because it is said often that Professor Trelawney’s main outer layer is reflective almost metallic.

This pattern contains straightforward, easy-to-follow pattern instructions (perfect for those times where you need easy knitting to accompany your movie-watching or audiobook-listening…how perfect, don’t you agree?). If you are a beginning knitter, this would be a good introduction to shawl knitting: there may be a couple of new-to-you techniques, but you should get along just fine!
