Through the Witch’s Garden


Through the Witch’s Garden was inspired by a few variables.

I adore all things witchy, which certainly includes listening to Steve Nicks of Fleetwood Mac while dancing around my century-old witchy house. Yes, I’m totally that girl behind closed doors lol.

My favorite color, purple, is also considered a very witchy color.

You stroll through intricate floral motifs while knitting this generously sized shawl. Through the Witch’s Garden is an engaging top-down half-pi shaped shawl that increases in stitch count six times throughout the shawl, giving the shawl its classic half-pi shape.


Worked flat, Through the Witch’s Garden contains written directions and charts. A handy-dandy progress tracker is included to help you with your rows and stitch counts. Yardage for each section is given should you wish to turn this into a scrappy project!
