Dappled Sunlight is a rectangular scarf or wrap with angled ends. A medley of eyelet and mesh stitches flit across its surface, reminding me of drops of sunlight filtering through summer leaves. These playful changes in stitch pattern will keep your project entertaining from beginning to end.

The finished piece is fully reversible, a breeze to wear.

Dappled Sunlight begins in exactly the same way as a top-down triangular shawl. Once the triangle is deep enough, the two live sides of the triangle are knitted separately to create the two halves of the wrap. This unusual construction is ideal for knitters who love to knit triangular shawls but prefer to wear stoles and scarves. It also avoids the dreaded endlessly long rows toward the end of most triangular or crescent shawl projects.

So choose a lovely fingering-weight yarn that will show off the variety of light and airy stitches, and enjoy yourself as you knit this charming piece!
