YARN - The After Party 52 Eastern Sunset Shawl

By Margje Enting

Imagine a mild Spring evening as the sun gently sets with the beautiful Eastern Sunset Shawl. Generously measuring 200 x 50cm, this shawl is created through 3 different sections, each featuring a contrasting technique. The first begins with garter stitch, then the second transforms to mosaic knitting, with the third involving a lace pattern. All techniques are clearly detailed in the pattern for lesser experienced crafters, with the end result being universally stunning!

To create this shawl, all you need is 1 ball of Scheepjes Whirligig, with finishing touches made using 1 ball of Scheepjes Whirligigette in a complementary shade. In her example above, Margje used Whirligig colour 209 Plum to Red and Whirligigette colour 251 Plum.


  • Scheepjes Whirligig (20% Alpaca, 80% Virgin Wool; 450g/1000m)
    Yarn A: 209 Plum to Red x 1 yarn cake
  • Scheepjes Whirligigette (20% Alpaca, 80% Virgin Wool; 100g/215m)
    Yarn B: 251 Plum x 1 ball
  • Pair of 3.5mm straight needles or 3.5mm circular needle, 80cm long
  • Tapestry needle

The pattern for the Eastern Sunset Shawl, designed by Margje Enting, is featured in YARN - The After Party 52. This issue of YARN - The After Party is available as a printed booklet in English (UK), Dutch, German and Swedish via Scheepjes retailers, or as a digital download via Ravelry in these languages plus English (US), French and Spanish.
