Sun-Kissed Skies Shawl

The Sunkissed Skies Shawl is a bottom-up, triangular shawl with a glistening, beaded border. It’s inspired by the early summer sky over the beach, just as the peach glow of the sun peeks along the horizon. This shawl lends itself to be worn either traditionally or draped in a number of ways around the neck.

Pattern Notes

This is a bottom-up triangle shawl. There is a 3-stitch garter border on either side of the shawl that is NOT on the chart (total 6 sts). The chart repeats are bordered in red. The spine is bordered in green. The written spine instructions are written in red.

RS (Right Side) (ODD numbered rows) – CHART: The chart is read from RIGHT TO LEFT. For the BORDER: Work the 3-stitch garter border, the chart, 3-stitch garter border. For the BODY: Work the 3-stitch garter border, the chart, the spine, the chart again, and the 3-stitch garter border.

WS (Wrong Side) (EVEN numbered rows) – CHART: The chart is read from LEFT TO RIGHT. For the BORDER: Work the 3-stitch garter border, the chart, 3-stitch garter border. For the BODY: Work the 3-stitch garter border, the chart, the spine, the chart again, and the 3-stitch garter border.

The beads on this shawl were not pre-strung. They were added one at a time using beading wire.

I recommend you use 4 stitch markers, 2 for the 3-stitch border on either side of the shawl and adding 2 around the spine on the body just slipping them along with your knitting. If you wish to use markers after each repeat, you will need more than upwards of 23 stitch markers for the pattern AND the 3-stitch garter border on either side that is NOT on the chart.

Note about written instructions and Body repeats

Row 46, K3, sm, *[(p1, k5) twice, p1] 7 (5) (3) is the only exception. (Stitch counts are listed separately.)
