All My Girls shawl | PDF pattern

All My Girls shawl brings to life the story of Little Women in stitches and color. The shawl itself is styled as a sampler, with different stitch patterns to represent each of the girls and an applied edging representing Marmee, whose wise counsel knits everyone together.

While the shawl looks complex, it is well within the skill range of an adventurous beginner and is entertaining enough for an intermediate knitter.

Construction: All My Girl is an elongated triangle, knit from the top down and beginning with a garter tab start. Each texture pattern is charted and written. To finish the shawl, an applied lace edging in a contrasting color is worked perpendicularly to the main body of the shawl.

Size: 74 inches wingspan and 25 inches at the deepest point of the triangle.

Skills needed: The shawl's texture looks beautifully complex, but is quite straightforward to knit. Well within the skill range of an adventurous beginner as well as an intermediate knitter, you will need to be able to:

  • knit and purl
  • increase and decrease stitches
  • cable stitches
  • read a chart or follow written directions

The pattern is both written and charted, and it has been tech-edited.

Immediate download + Ravelry code: You will receive an immediate PDF download and we will also mail you a keepsake postcard with a one-time use code to add the pattern to your Ravelry library.

I live the stitch markers and page flags. I would love to be able to buy a set of the pen, skates, etc. or buy them as individuals—like the limes.

Hi Betty--the stitch markers and page flags are available here: Thanks for asking!
