Please enjoy this free pattern download. In an effort to find a balance between more financial accessibility and sustainable pricing, I now offer a “Pay What Works” model for my paid-for designs. This allows for financial flexibility while still valuing and respecting the work and energy I and others provide in the making of this pattern.

I have chosen a select number of my patterns to put up for free. If you wish to leave a thank you for my work, you can leave a small tip on Ko-Fi, or become a monthly supporter on Patreon and receive a free pattern download each month.

During the upcoming winter months, we sure are going to miss the sun’s light and warmth. Hopefully this shawlette can give you some of that light back! The Rayon de Soleil Shawlette (French for “Sunlight”) is a graceful and light shawlette that can be knit to any size you wish! Wrap it around your neck or your shoulders to keep you company while you wait for Spring to return! (And wear it during the warmer months to soak in all the sun!)

The shawlette is knit in a series of alternating sections of stockinette stitch and eyelet garter rows, top to bottom, increases on the border shaping it into a crescent form. To top it off, a picot bind off is used.
