You can find out the background to this series of shawls by reading this post or watching the podcast where I explain all.
There is one shawl for each of the characters from the book Little Women, Beth, Amy, Jo and finally, Meg.
Here it is!
This is a VERY big shawl, but it can easily be made smaller. It isn't very wide, but it is quite long. However... because it is narrower at the ends it allows you to just leave those dangling around your neck. You will see in the pattern how you can adapt it to the size you want.
If you know the story you may recall that Meg married John Brooke, who was Laurie's tutor, in the garden of the March's home under an arbour. The design of this shawl reminds me of the arbour and the beautiful flowers and plants that I saw growing in the gardens of Orchard House when I visited it.
Hence the dangles. Oh yes. Lots of dangles!! I am going to love the dangles on this one. If they aren't for you it doesn't matter, you can easily leave them off.
So, that is it. The four patterns are now done. I was planning a variation of the Jo Shawl, but I have decided to go a different way with it and the design is now so different that I will give it a different name than the "Jo Variant".
Here are a few more photos!
My husband asked, what next then? Well, I replied, I have mandalas a go go to write the patterns up for and then I will take a break. Of course since then I have had more ideas....
I do hope you enjoy this shawl and if you want to purchase the pattern you can click here.
To remind you in case you have been waiting to see all four shawls before making your choice as to which pattern to purchase here they are all together!
