Originally published in 2009, this is a rewritten version of Par un matin de printemps, an ode to the comeback of spring, when the shy sunrise is between pink and orange, fragile and romantic. The construction of this shawl is based on the Shetland-style type, in its modern way, i.e. with almost no grafting. The central square is knitted first in a lovely little leaf pattern. The large inner border is picked up around the center square and knitted in the round, with an undulating stitch, while mitered corners are created by increasing with yarnovers on each side of the corner stitches every other row. The outer border is knitted onto the shawl once the inner border is complete.

Instructions : charts, written.
