Pattern Description:

Worked from the top down, this one skein shawl is very simple to knit and the pattern is very easy to memorize as you go along. The pleated ruffle is easy and makes such a romantic and flirtatious edging. The spectacular color is dyed into the one skein! No fussing with changing color. This stunner couldn't be simpler. The shawl is inspired by the yarn and the name is inspired by the color. I imagine Marilyn Monroe wearing this accessory with red lipstick and walking down Sunset Boulevard.
