The Suncrest Shawl is my second contribution to the Stella Collection. Though it is completely different from my first design (Adhara) in lots of ways, the link for me is in the texture. I was clearly going through a texture phase! This shawl came together rather quickly for me as I had a very clear vision of what I wanted when I set out on to design Suncrest. I wanted to explore multi-directional knitting, texture and the idea of reversibility. I love how cushy and soft garter stitch is in the luscious Red Label yarn, so a garter stitch body was a no brainer. I paired it with a beautiful, scalloped, Fan Shell border that, though not identical on both sides, is equally beautiful from every angle. I'm currently in love with the arc shape of this shawl, it's just so wearable! I predict I'll be knitting many more of these in the future (I may have already cast on for a second!)
