This shawl pattern is inspired by the shawl worn by the lovely Reese Witherspoon in the movie Sweet Home Alabama. The pattern gives instructions for making the shawl as wide or as long as you would like. I was delighted to supply pictures of my shawl to be featured in the July 2011 issue of the U.K. publication "Let's Knit!" All that's need to make this shawl is a knowledge of how to knit, purl and a basic knowledge of crochet for the trim. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit Purl Crochet GAUGE 4 stitches/6 rows = 1" square
