The Sunlight Shawl for Sad people started as a simple no-brainer shawl made out of lovely yarn to cheer me up in the miserable Vancouver weather.

In theory this shawl could be done with any weight yarn - I’d love to see someone try it out of very large yarn (like Twinkle or Rasta.) Just follow the needle size that the yarn suggests and go for it. It can also, most definitely, can be knit in any colour yarn. A blue sky shawl or a snow storm shawl, or any kind of lovely weather shawl would be lovely.

I’ve updated the pattern to include a quick (poorly drawn) diagram of the construction of a triangle shawl. Just because it’s not exactly intuitive!

This pattern has been chosen to be put on the Malabrigo website as a free pattern! What an honor! Malabrigo is absolutely my go-to brand of yarn for lace, shawl and cowl projects. It’s just lovely yarn.
