From designer Xandy Peters: I was thinking of the sun, margaritas, and very warm, autumnal shawls when I designed this crescent wrap. I'm even cold in the summer sometimes. Especially after dark, or in late August when the weather starts to shift. Thinking of the summer sun setting as I sit outside with friends, chatting and watching the sky change color - this is when I start to shiver and look for something warm like the sun.
So I drew up a shawl like the setting sun in my sketchbook and knit it up. Solarita is a crescent shaped shawl with a garter stitch base and a lacy border. The edge is a faux fringe look with a unique construction. Solarita is perfect for spring weather, chilly summer nights, or windy days in autumn.
