"I’m not like the rest of you. I never made any plans about what I’d do when I grew up.” (Beth March, Little Women)

Beth is the second youngest of the March sisters, who is only comfortable at home or playing the piano. She never does get to grow up, but hopefully, a practical shoulder-warming shawl like this would have been a comfort to her.

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

Many thanks to Nancy Marchant for her work on brioche stitches and terminology, which is used here and to Deb Bramham for her brilliant tech editing.
