Putting a modern spin on beautiful 1920’s fashion, the Sunburst Shawl embodies the luxury, glamour and exuberance of the Art Deco era.

It is a beaded, crescent shaped shawl that takes its name from a motif often seen in the architecture, art and clothing of the period.

Knit this shawl with a single skein of sock yarn, and dance the night away at a jazz festival or summer ball.
