Free pattern Friday: Sunray Shawl May 15, 2015 – Posted in: Free Pattern Fridays, Project Ideas
The Sunray Shawl by designer Dunkelgrün is one of those easily customizable patterns that lends itself well to adjustments in size as well as just about any yarn weight. Although the one pictured is knit with a fingering to sport weight yarn (370m / wingspan 65″), you can use any other weight (be sure to adjust your needle size) and / or knit additional repeats for a larger shawl. With a semicircular shape, decorative yarn-overs arranged like sunrays, and a picot edge, this shawl is pretty and feminine and beautifully textured.
The designer includes a link to a video tutorial for the picot-edge bind-off and notes that this pattern is suitable for beginners – including first-time shawl knitters, first-time lace knitters, and first-time picot-edge bind-off knitters – so, if you’ve been putting off trying out these types of projects, no more excuses. It’s time to take the leap 🙂
