IMPORTANT: This pattern is available for free on my blog, but if you rather work from paper or if you want to support me as a designer, I have also made a ready-to-print PDF available for a small fee. The PDF version is available here on Ravelry or on Etsy.

The Inspiration
Do you recognize the shifting of the light between the seasons? When the trees create new leaves again, the light shifts from winterblue hues to soft green light. The shawl is inspired on this transformation from Winter to Spring. The pattern is part of the Poetry Collection, and as such, it is accompanied by a poem about the inspiration. You can read more about this collection here.

This pattern consists of

  • A chart with instructions for how to follow it. There are no full out written instructions.
  • A tutorial for how to read the chart, if you have never done it before.
  • The pattern is available for free on my blog, but if you’d rather work from a PDF, I have also made that option available for a small fee.

Used Techniques
Standard stitches (US terms): chain and double crochet.

Yarn & sizes
The shawl is made with 5 balls of Scheepjes Our Tribe (70%merino/30%polyamide, 100g/420m) in colourway ‘A Spoonful of Yarn’. This will yield a shawl of 60x200cm (24x80”).

The pattern was tested in English. The Dutch version was not tested, so little typos may occur. Please contact me via email if you have found a mistake, or if you need help with the pattern.
