Wayward Sisters Shawl

The Wayward Sisters, or the Weird Sisters, from Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” have always felt like the original feminist witches to me. Strong, independent, and frightening to men. This trio inspired the Wayward Sisters Shawl, which uses a simple Garter Increase Pattern, combined with stockinette short rows, to create little bursts of color that peek out of a sea of gray. Wooly Witch of the West’s naturally dyed yarns offer it a second connection to nature for the green witch knitters. 

This pattern also comes with a short spell for Protection for Your Sisterhood.
