Breaking over the clear turquoise water each morning in ombre shades of orange and yellow, the Tahitian Sunrise fills the sky with its glory. The Tahitian Sunrise Shawl is an asymmetrical bias-knit shawl that incorporates lace inserts into its design as the shawl grows. It simultaneously builds an ombre color story from the darkest shade at the cast on and graduating to progressively lighter colors until casting off on the longest side. I used a sport weight yarn to knit this in, but you can choose any weight since it is a very flexible pattern and can be worked to any size. I used the Katia Ombre Cotton Set in the Orange/Yellow colorway which had 6 small skeins totaling 552 yards. My finished shawl is 6 feet in length and 24 inches at its deepest point. Full written instructions are included in the pattern as well as charts and row counts for the lace inserts.
