The Helianthus Shawl is a bright sunny shawl that radiates joy, much like its namesake, the sunflower. This half-circle shawl is lovely for any season with its light airy construction. Worked from the bottom up, yarn overs and twisted stitches come together to form the petals of the sunflower. It is as at home in the garden as it is on a fashionable evening out!
