Pattern Description:

A Crescent Shaped Shawl featuring a "Sunburst" Motif Edging
I have loved this stitch pattern for years and wanted to design something that featured it. A friend thought it looked like a series of sunbursts, and the name was born.
It drapes perfectly over the shoulders and stays put, or it can be worn scarf style. I have even crossed it in the front and tied it in the back.
This engaging knit starts with the edging, only fourteen rows complete the sunburst pattern. A simple short row (no wraps) is repeated for the body of the shawl to create the graceful shaping. The I-cord bind off is used to compliment the cast on edge.
Included in the pattern are photos, a complete list of abbreviations, and a stitch glossary.
Skill level: intermediate.
