Whether traipsing through the highlands of Dorthonion in the dead of winter or fending off a chill in the twilight evening of Doriath, Beren would have found this shawl/scarf a constant welcome companion on his journeys through Beleriand. Inspired by the pinewoods of Dorthonion where Beren was born and raised, the cables and moss stitch echo the textures of a moody forest. Lightweight, yet warm, the Beren Shawl is versatile enough to be worn in any season—as a scarf to keep you warm in winter or a light shawl to warm your shoulders on a summer evening.

The Beren shawl is knit flat from end to end. It uses gradual increases to create a curve along the bottom edge of the shawl. The pattern also includes instructions for modifying the finished shape for a straight scarf or a triangular shawl.
