Sweet November Knit Shawl/Scarf


I saw this shawl/scarf in the movie “Sweet November” and had to make it. Charlize Theron wore this shawl/scarf in various colors throughout the movie and while the movie was not really my cup of tea, I couldn’t take my eyes off the scarf. As soon as the movie ended, I wanted to knit the shawl but considered that others had probably thought the same. I googled ‘sweet november scarf’ and found a number of crocheted versions of the shawl. While I can crochet, I thought it would be cool to work out how to knit it. Thus, the ‘Sweet November Knit Shawl’.

Here’s Charlize Theron in the shawl:


My Version:

This is a free pattern available in English and also translated in Italian: download now

Additionally, a fellow raveler messaged me and asked if she could feature my pattern for Sweet November Shawl in the knit/crochet section of an Italian online mag called Leiweb. Obviously I said yes. Anyhow, the post featuring the Sweet November pattern can be found by clicking the link. It’s about how film inspires knitting. I quite like this section:

“La talentuosa Caryl Pierre (qui il suo blog e qui il suo Etsy shop) ha da poco rilasciato, infatti, lo Sweet November Knit Shawl, per cui ho già chiesto e ricevuto dall’autrice l’autorizzazione a realizzare una traduzione in italiano.”

    Hey,
    I am in love with this shawl/scarf, I’ve become quite good at knitting and decided to give your pattern a whirl. However, I tried to download it and found out it’s not compatable with my laptop. I was wondering if there was any other way to get it? I searched for hours on google but only came up with crochet patterns. I don’t know how to crochet :S Thankyou!!

    thanks so much for posting this! i’ve been looking for a pattern of any kind for some yarn i have that is way too casual for lacy work but this scarf would actually work. Thanks!

    I didn’t find it was anything like the scarf Charlize Theron wears in Sweet November. It is too short, and too triangular.
