Join the KAL! There will be a Sunspotter KAL happening in my Paper Daisy Creations group through the end of October! You only need to complete Section 1 of the shawl to be eligible for some exciting prizes!

Dark spots dance across the surface of our solar sphere, known to scientists as ‘sunspots.’ This asymmetrical triangular shawl uses the stunning gradients of Marianated Yarns to create your own eye-catching phenomenon. Short rows of color forge small spots throughout the first section, producing color pops across the dark blue sky. The second section shows the full spectrum of warm hues, darkened only by the short row ‘sunspots.’ Use the same sunny shades or invent your own combination of color wonder to create your very own Sunspotter.
