It is hot in the desert, unbearably hot. Yet plants manage to grow and animals find a way to survive. The sun makes the desert burn but it also makes the desert come alive.
The Sunburnt shawl plays with motifs of life and movement, reminding us that life flourishes even in the harshest environments. Worked from the top down in a version of Faroese-shawl shaping, it integrates a variety of lace stitch patterns.
The result is a two-toned piece in contrasting colours that will adorn you in any season. Choose your two favourite colours and go knit!
