The Sun Salutation Shawl is a mesmerizing meditation on stacked stitch patterns. Starting with a sun shaped center, each consecutive tier shifts the colors as the shawl expands in a crescent shape. A picot edge finishes the shawl with little rays of light.

This pattern was requested as a companion to the Lotus Challenge with the same stitch motif in a crescent shape.
