Nantahala Shawl

Purchase the pattern HERE on Ravelry.

Last fall I was able to attend the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY.  We drove up out of New York City, enjoying the gorgeous hardwood forests, still green, as it was unseasonably warm for that time of year.

I’ve lived in the western US for half of my life, but I am an east coast girl, born and bred.  Nothing stirs my soul like being in a sun dappled, east coast forest.  I love the green, I love the filtered light, I love the smell…it’s like being home.

In February of this year at Stitches West, I was perusing the marketplace and was immediately attracted to two skeins of Meadowcroft Dyeworks Silk Traveler in Grasshopper.   The gorgeous greens were the exact colors of a sun dappled forest.

And so the Nantahala Shawl was born.  Named after the Nantahala National Forest in North Carolina, this top down, crescent shaped shawl has a pleasing mix of simple lace and squishy garter stitch sections and ends with a delicate picot bind-off.

  1. Hi, I love this shawl pattern, but live in the UK so would I still be able to purchase the pattern? Also is the pattern written with a chart to follow or are there written knitting instructions?

    Kind regards

  2. I wanted to join and make this shawl; however, the web site would not let me in. It is 4-25 And it does state I can get the pattern if I sign up on Facebook before 5-1. Please tell me what I can do. Thank you

  3. I also wanted to join and make this beautiful shawl. I tried to sign in to the website but I was told it was a closed group. How can I get this pattern? I am going to a knitter’s frolic this weekend and I would love to get the yarn to start this project. Thank you for your help.
