Once upon a time…an anguished mother, wrapped in uncertainty and helplessness, sitting in the waiting room of a hospital, awaiting the doctor’s verdict on what was happening to her eldest daughter. She needed to clear her head, so she drew … she drew alone, and she drew with her daughters.
This story has a happy ending: nothing bad happened to his daughter.
Everything else does not matter.

I keep that notebook with love, full of sad and happy memories at the same time, and one of those memories is the drawing of a shawl.
I never thought that shawl would become something more than a drawing, but here it is, like a warm and comforting hug…

The shape is established by wraps and turns, increases and decreases.

The size depends on the needles size you use, and how loosely (or tightly) you knit. Same with how much yarn you will need: for reference, I used 100 grams of main color and 105 grams of contrasting color, used a 3,5 mm circular needle, and I knit loosely.

But the most important thing is that you use a stretchy bind off, like Jeny´s surprisingly stretchy bind off , or any bind off that you prefer.


Había una vez… una madre angustiada, envuelta en incertidumbre e impotencia, sentada en la sala de espera de un hospital, esperando el veredicto del médico sobre lo que le sucedía a su hija mayor. Ella necesitaba despejar su cabeza, así que dibujaba…dibujaba sola, y dibujaba con sus hijas.
Esta historia tiene un final feliz: nada malo le sucedió a su hija.
Todo lo demás no tiene importancia.

Guardo con mucho cariño ese cuaderno, lleno de recuerdos tristes y felices a la vez, y uno de esos recuerdos es el dibujo de un chal.
Nunca pensé que ese chal se transformaría en algo más que en un dibujo, pero aquí está, como un cálido y reconfortante abrazo…
