Un mattino di Aprile is a tribute to spring, to renaissance, to every new start.
It is my first collaboration with a talented Italian dyer, Valentina, owner and maker behind SnailYarn label.

It is a triangular, sideways shawl worked from the right tip to the left-bottom edge. Garter stitch is alternated with lace sections in a different color; the lace pattern, delicate and elegant, easy to memorize and work, gives movement and lightness to this shawl.
Easy and interesting to work, Un mattino di Aprile is also accessible to lace beginners.

The yarn used, the fingering single ply from SnailYarn, is the real added value of this shawl.
Wonderful and bright colors, softness and sleekness are the characteristics of this little SnailYarn masterpiece.
