Blurry eyed, you slip out of bed, wrap your hands around a steaming cup of coffee and, stepping outside, raise your eyes to the east. Slowly, gently, the new day begins.

Pull your shawl closer around your shoulders and hold on to the remnants of warmth from your bed. A golden glow teases the landscape and whispers of hope.

This is Flindra, a celebration of the magical moment as night meets day and darkness is filled with light.

Knitted from side to side, Flindra is an escape into delicious texture.

You’ll relax to the rhythm of simple stitches, subtle colour play and delightful shifts in direction with easy increases and decreases.

The pattern includes links to tutorials, and is perfectly suited to experienced knitters and adventurous beginners.
