Join the Sunset Shawl KAL here!
There is something so relaxing about watching the sun hide in the horizon, changing the colours of the sky until it goes to sleep. It can get a bit chilly while you enjoy the sublime experience though, in which case a shawl to put around your shoulders like a hug and to keep the chill out is a must. Sunset shawl is knitted starting in middle of the back at the neck, with quite an interesting cast on and construction. The body of the shawl is knitted first, and then the band containing the cable is knitted while attaching it to the body as you go along. Imagine that! Big shawl but never a gazillion stitches on the needles! ;)
