Sun rays fall on the sea waves; Sparkle like diamonds of liquid
Sun rays fall on the green leaves; Reflect back like splinters of glass

Arushi (first rays of the sun) is a crescent shaped shawl knit from the bottom up. The pointy edges and the lace portion are worked back and forth and the stockinette crescent shaped is worked using short rows. The lace stitch is charted and written instructions are also provided.

The sample is knit using WalkCollection BFL Lace. This shawl can be knit using light/fingering weight yarn (WalkCollection Bliss or WalkCollection Delicate Merino) also. Use bigger needles to get the right drape with heavier yarn. The finished size and yardage will vary if heavier yarn is used.
