This pattern is inspired by the change of the seasons, when it is not the end of winter yet but it starts to feel like spring and everyone is feeling excited for the warmer days and the tulip bulbs that are starting to work their way through the dirt. This shawl will become your “in between season shawl”, the shawl you will want to wear because it will keep you warm but that will also make you feel ready for the lighter colors that spring brings.
My friend Manda described the shawl perfectly when she told me it felt like “you could wrap yourself in sunshine for winters end” when I showed her pictures of my finished design. I sincerely hope this shawl brings you joy after a long winter and makes you look forward to all the beauty that is spring.
