Pay What Works: In an effort to find a balance between more financial accessibility and sustainable pricing, I now offer a “Pay What Works” model. This allows for financial flexibility while still valuing and respecting the work and energy I and others provide in the making of this pattern. The price shown on Ravelry is the “true” value of the pattern that best reflects the work put into creating this design.

Spring Awakens is part of the Spring Shawl Collection, an all-over lace design with a garter stitch border worked in a semi-circular shawl construction.

Do you know that feeling when you step out of your house after a long, dark winter and everything just feels…Perfect? The temperature is just right, the wind is softly blowing, the trees are full of song, and there is a soft fragrance of nature in the air. Spring has awoken and it is sweetly saying hello.

This shawl is very easy to knit up in any weight or fiber, and can be made as big or as small as you like. A very relaxing and mediative knit to help comfort the mind and delight the needles, you will be wrapping yourself in this elegant shawl to welcome spring in and bask in its awakening.


This pattern has been tech edited and test knit to ensure that the pattern is as error free as possible. We want you, your yarn and your needles to experience an enriching, engaging and exciting knit.
