Picture this: you’re at the beach, walking along the shore at dawn. A beautiful sun starts rising from the horizon, bursting with light and color. This imagery served as the inspiration for the Sunburst Shawl. With bold stripes and a lot of lace, this shawl is just as fun to make as it is to wear. Two colors of Magnolia work in harmony, creating dynamic lines and shapes. A half-circular shape makes it easy to throw this over your shoulders any way you choose, and small tassels that decorate the lace edging add just the right amount of spice to this design.

This shawl is knit from the top down. Increases are worked into each ‘section’ of the shawl, forming a half circular shape. The Lace Edging is cast on and worked after completion of the main body of the shawl, consuming one of the shawl body stitches in each right side row worked. Mini tassels are added to the Lace Edging after completion.
