With the designing process, I often have the design all worked out in my head, write up the initial pattern and then find a suitable yarn to match my vision.

This time, I saw this yarn with shades of pink, purple and orange and straight away, it reminded me of something. A sunset.

Sitting on the steps at the back of my house, I often sit and look at the sunsets. They are a frequent occurrence especially as the spring turns to summer. The colours are so vibrant!

This shawl has been designed for the yarn to be the main focus, to take centre stage and for its’ full effect to be shown.

I settled on this striped design so that the colours of the sunset could work their way across the shawl. I set the raised coloured stripes against a plain pink background which represents the pink haze that surrounds a sunset.
