In developing the Suncrest Shawl pattern there were a few key features I knew I wanted to explore: multi-directional knitting, texture and the idea of reversibility. I love how cushy and soft garter stitch is in the luscious Red Label yarn, so a garter stitch body was a no brainer. I paired it with a beautiful, scalloped, Fan Shell border that, though not identical on both sides, is equally beautiful from every angle. The Fan Shell border accentuates the soft arc shape of the shawl and the picot bind off is the finishing touch that reminds me of rays of sunshine!
