Description

Alpine Sunset shawl is a picture postcard of a shawl, inspired by winter views in the mountains.

This shawl is a cosy crescent shape, perfect for wrapping yourself up against the evening’s chill as you watch the sun sink out of sight behind the ridge. It features simple lace and chevrons that call to mind pine trees and peaks outlined across the glow of a winter sky.

Alpine Sunset can be knit in two sizes: the medium sized two-skein shawl features graphic colour blocking, while the small one-colour shawl is ideal for using up a single skein of lovely 4 ply yarn. Optional beading on either size adds a dusting of sparkle to an already special shawl.
