The Tequila Sunset shawl was designed to showcase a beautiful variegated colourway. Pair with a solid, or semi-solid yarn and you are good to go. The pattern is knit from the top down with the middle panel worked in intarsia. Don’t be afraid of intarsia - it’s a cinch, I promise!
The side sections alternate between a simple lace repeat pattern and stockinette stripes.
It would work equally well with 2 solid colours – or if you are feeling adventurous you could even work with 3 yarns and have a different colour for each side section.
The finished shawl is a joy to wear and you will be sure to turn heads as you wrap it round your shoulders.
