Imagine a mild Spring evening as the sun gently sets with the beautiful Eastern Sunset Shawl. Generously measuring 200 x 50cm, this shawl is created through 3 different sections, each featuring a contrasting technique. The first begins with garter stitch, then the second transforms to mosaic knitting, with the third involving a lace pattern. All techniques are clearly detailed in the pattern for lesser experienced crafters, with the end result being universally stunning!
To create this shawl, all you need is 1 ball of Scheepjes Whirligig, with finishing touches made using 1 ball of Scheepjes Whirligigette in a complementary shade. In her example above, Margje used Whirligig colour 209 Plum to Red and Whirligigette colour 251 Plum.
