Cold winter months can go on and on, seemingly without end, until that moment when hope is restored by trees and plants pushing out their leaves towards to early springtime sun. If you’re like me, you wait very impatiently for this sign that the warm months are just around the corner.

Frisson is that moment of excitement and joy that it will soon be time for sandals and sundresses. This lightweight bias shawl can even be knit as an advent calendar for spring; the lace sections grow and grow right along with your anticipation for the warmer months of the year.

Errata for those of you who downloaded V1 and V2 of the pattern: There is mistake in Point 5. It appears that row 59 is missing (but it really isn’t). The instructions are all correct, the numbers just got off by two. So row 61 is actually row 59 and so on. If you can just pretend that you worked row 59 and 60, you can then go merrily on your way. And don’t forget- bind off on an even numbered row!

Missing from abbreviations key: m1= Make One. Use your preferred method to create a stitch. I used a bar increase.
