Forest in deep Winter,
On forked birch, covered with snow – Nest
Dreaming of Robins Return

Longing for Robins Return is knit in one piece from bottom up. The gentle shaping of Scalloped Robin Nest motif, together with short rows, give the shawl a crescent shape. For beaded option, the placement of beads are marked in pink on the chart.

Inspired by the robin nest in front of my window.
It was just like yesterday: the robins arrived on April 2 - Good Friday. They hunted on my lawn, built a nest on my birch, and fed their young …. Underneath the birch were snow drops, hyacinths and tulips.
