Before Sunset is an elegant shawl that features combination of texture and lace. The shawl’s body is knitted bottom-up with the stitches later picked up for the border from the yo loops used for shawl increases. It is fun and easy construction to knit. Suitable for a lazy night in or for a stroll along the shoreline, this light, yet warm shawl is perfect for all year round.
