A rarity for sure, in that, Nakia's shawl knitting pattern has been posted straight from the "horse's mouth,"  Jeff Gillies, who worked on costume design for the movie. The oversized wrap shawl uses four different yarns to achieve the brilliant fabric color and texture of the original.

Knitting Windbreaker in a Nor'Easter

Lone Kjeldsen's Windbreaker
Sitting here listening to this Nor'easter - the wind, rain, and snow battering the trees and the gate banging in rhythm, the reality of knitting Lone Kjeldsen's "Windbreaker" pattern became quite clear. It's a wonderful design for layering in the fall, when my granddaughter goes off to college.

I chose Tahki's Donegal Tweed, Irish spun in Dublin, which harkens more memories still. In my younger days, Irish yarn was the choice of natural fiber yarn snobs, especially here in the Northeast. While "Windbreaker" doesn't have any cables or bobbles worn on St. Patrick's Day, it does have stars.
