Sunlit Autumn Shawl
Autumn sunlight welcomes the transition from summer to autumn. It tints the leaf edges gold as it peaks through the translucent leaves. I wanted to capture that warm fractured shimmering light as it glows through the changing leaves into the form of a shawl.
This crescent shaped shawl begins with an easy garter stitch that transitions into bands of eyelet mesh separated by a few rows of stockinette. The shawl body is a straightforward and relaxing knit with a captivating applied lace border to finish off this gorgeous lace shawl. A lovely size for draping around the neck to ward off the slight chill in the the air during seasonal transitions.
Sunlit Autumn is the perfect pattern for an advanced beginner who wants to step into the wonderful realm of lace knitting. The pattern is both written and charted.
Gauge is not critical for this shawl. Gauge may vary depending upon yarn used and how it responds to blocking. Your gauge will affect the amount of yarn used.
