Under the Sun is the companion shawl to Beneath the Moon. It’s worked in Mrs Crosby Reticule and uses two skeins.

I originally did the swatch in Mrs Crosby Hat Box, but opted for the lace for the yardage vs cost. Reticule, at around $23/skein, is a lovely, luxurious option at a really good price.

Having said that, the pattern is easily modified for really any yarn weight. Just work the swatch (directions included) to get a fabric you like, and go from there!

This lovely laceweight shawl, worked as a wedge from the bottom up, incorporates a modifcation of one of my favorite vintage lace patterns, Print of the Wave. The half wave edging is worked as a knitted on edging to bind off the top of the shawl.

Both charts and line by line instructions are provided.
