The Godswood of Winterfell Shawl

My first KAL is over! I have mixed emotions. SO fun to host a KAL with so many wonderful knitters, yet I’m so excited that it’s over and I can finally show everyone the completed shawl!

If you love it as much as I do, then you really must knit one up for yourself. Even though the MKAL is over, winter has not yet come. There is still time to make your own Godswood to protect you from the cold northern ice. You can find the pattern in my Ravelry store: The Godswood of Winterfell.

I LOVE the way it knits up.


There was a good bit of tinking and ripping throughout the design process, but the finished product was well worth it.


I named it the Godswood, because the stitches bring to mind the leaves of a tree.


The center spine… the trunk.


A few drops of blood – because after all – it is Winterfell !


It rests nicely on the shoulders. The center panel hugs the back of the neck, giving the sides the perfect resting place on the wearer.


The lace is both delicate, yet strong, like a true Stark.





The Godswood of Winterfell  on Ravelry is both a fully written and charted pattern.

My samples above were knit in Madelinetosh Pashmina (Tart) and Tosh Sock (Silver Fox).

The shawl blow was my test knit (that’s the one that withstood all the tinking and ripping). It’s some yarn that I dyed myself. While not the color of the Weirwood, I love the green of the summer trees in south Georgia.
