"Mon réconfort" is a shawl in 3 colors entirely made in garter stitch. You will be guided by a set of sections, sometimes plain, sometimes striped, all embellished with short rows. No technique is necessary to make them, you will just have to knit the number of stitches recommended in the explanations and turn your work, when the time comes... and that's all !
