Sunny with a Few Clouds



This shawl brings you the blue summer sky with “feathery curtains stretching o’er the sun’s bright couch”. (Percy Bysshe Shelley) Choose other colors and watch your project turn into… a spring meadow with blooming flowers… a Japanese cherry orchard… just use your imagination and your shawl will tell its own story.

Sunny with a Few Clouds is worked from the top down and shaped with easy short rows. Tutorials for the cable-cast on and the lifted increase are included. The pattern contains both charted and written-out instructions.

This pattern can be purchased individually or as part of my Shawleidoscope collection.
