Every time I watch the sunset, it feels like the first time. The swirls of light and dark colors bring so much delight and comfort. The anticipation of seeing the last light disappear over the horizon is an incredible sight to witness. The first sunset shawl celebrates this amazing event that we often take for granted. Knit in a cotton yarn, this shawl will be your favorite lightweight summer knit that is easy to take on all your sunny adventures. Take it to the beach, park, or wherever you can fit in a few rows. First Sunset is the summer knit you will not want to put down!

This design is part of a collection in collaboration with another designer, Marie from Olive Knits. If you love this pattern, then you will love the other patterns in the collection as well. Take a peak at the whole bundle to find more beautiful patterns to make a perfect summer wardrobe.

This pattern has been tech edited and test knit.

First Sunset is a crescent shaped shawl that is worked flat from the top down. It has eyelet lace rows worked in a striping pattern on the body and a simple lace pattern for the border.
