Girasole is a side-to-side crescent shawl that looks complicated but actually is very easy to construct. Working from one end you will create all of the fabric – including the edging – all at once. With a simple to memorize 6-row repeat, Girasole, or sunflower in Italian, will be a go-to shawl when you need something lightweight to wear but keep your shoulders warm.
