“The world is hard on ambitious girls.” (Amy March, Little Women)

Amy was a young woman who knew what she wanted and that was some glamour and sparkle in her life. This vibrant shawl reflects that desire, whilst not being so large as to hide her other beautiful clothes – that would never do.

The pattern is fully written with optional charts which are included as a separate file. The shawl begins with a short Italian 2-colour cast-on and there is a link to a video tutorial included in the pattern.

The full March Brioche Shawl Collection is also available here.
