"In Morvan, there are sublime starry heavens, trees with green leaves, red, yellow depending on the season, and the legacy of the Eduens who lived there, spreading art and Celtic culture. There is a little of all this in this shawl that I loved to knit, its border reminiscent of the forest and Celtic patterns, its body dotted with glittering pearls like nocturnal stars. For this shawl in half circle, 2 possible options: in 4 and 4.5mm depending on the thread used, and especially two qualities of yarn used: an organic cotton that clearly marks each stitch while providing a gradient of soft and harmonious color, and a mixture of alpaca and silk, ultra light and vaporous for a diaphanous effect. It can be made with or without pearls according to the taste of each one, and if it is beaded, either in colorless for the brilliant touch, or in color to raise more the shade of the shawl."

tried to find the pattern for Amour, not to be found.

Hi mzmarti! Simply click the link that reads "Click here for knitting pattern" on this page, and on the blog post you are taken to, scroll down to near the bottom of the page where two downloads are offered. Click the link that reads "In English: Shawl_Amour_English_Version," and that opens the pattern! Let us know if you still have trouble with this. Happy knitting! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting
