A fun semicircular shawl in two sizes (petite/tall) that is sure to bring out the sun on those darker days in late fall. Its expanding sunflower design makes for some fun and interesting knitting as each section evolves from the needles. Worked from neck to hem in a lofty lace yarn, the fabric is lightweight, yet strikingly textured; this could be a new favorite.
