Nido is the word in Spanish for nest; the shawl is inspired by the colors of the yarn I used to create it. Since the first moment I saw the yarn I immediately thought of spring, bird nests and all the different shades of eggs you can find on them during this season. The shawl is designed in a simple crescent shape, playing with two different colors to create texture and add some intricacy to the shape. The border is a simple lace pattern, which makes the shawl look airy and feminine.
