Grand Canyon Sunset Shawl
Grand Canyon Sunset Shawl

There's no experience quite like that feeling of humbleness while watching the orange sun dip down behind the sprawling Grand Canyon. Recreate that seemingly inimitable beauty with this Grand Canyon Sunset Shawl. This easy knit shawl pattern yields a breezy spring or summer shawl that looks lovely on any lady. The way the deep crimson-brown fades into a dazzling bright yellow is both hypnotizing and graceful. We can't always be in Arizona looking upon the greatest natural wonder in the United States, so we're just going to have to pretend.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I looked at the comments on this pattern and I looked over the pattern details. I do not see any problems. My only complaint is that it does not give the yardage on the yarn used. I looked it up and the yarn used has 497 yards in the skein. I will use something with a bit more yardage. I like the fact that the pattern is written out and has charts. I have to improve on my chart reading. This pattern will go on my list. I make a lot of scarves. I live in NYC and that extra layer is needed. Thank you for the pattern.

I bought the yarn, knitted it beautifully until I ran out of yarn at 50 inches. It is exactly 12" wide at the widest point - anyone else have this problem?

Hello all, PLEASE HELP I was ok following the pattern up to the part "Rep 43rd to 50th rows to 82 sts on needle, ending on a 50th row", my question is how you can get from 26 sts to 82 sts without significant increases which I do not see in the pattern. Any comments and help clarifying this will be appreciated. Thank you.

You don't need significant increases in the pattern to achieve the 82 stitches. You should have 26 stitches when you get to row 43 the first time through, after that you will ONLY work rows 43 to 50 until 82 stitches on needle, so you will work rows 43 to 50 for approximately 7 more times or 56 rows to achieve the 82 stitches on the needles. Hope this helps.

This pattern has an error in the chart 2 instructions and chart. Please fix as this is a very nice pattern and a lot of work to get to the end and have a mistake. Please take the time to go to the original pattern on yarnspirations.com under the name "edge of the wedge shawl" to fix.

Hello debbiecarrica 0083 988! Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The pattern has been updated. Hope this helps! - Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I went to the yarnspirations site and got the original pattern which is different from this one. It's called EDGE OF THE WEDGE SHAWL. It was quite different so I am going to make that one instead of this one which has mistakes from the original pattern.

Hello LizKS48! Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The pattern has been updated. Hope this helps! - Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I'm enjoying knitting this shawl but I think there is a mistake in here somewhere because no matter what I do my numbers are off. I've restarted multiple times trying to figure out what my mistake was but I can't find my error. The inconsistency seems to be around row 25.

I left a comment but I'll tell you as a reply to your question. I went to the yarninspirations website and looked up the pattern by the picture. The original pattern EDGE OF THE WEDGE SHAWL is different from the one on this website. I found several inconsistences so I am going to use the original pattern. Here s the link http//bit.ly/1WuaodE

Hello Bwlinkous! Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The pattern has been updated. Hope this helps! - Editors of AllFreeKnitting

In abbreviations listing, MB = how do you do the "Turn"

Turn in this context simply means to go back and knit only the stitches that have been completed for the bobble, so just turn it around like you normally would but only use the 3 stitches for the bobble.

How is this patter "Easy"??

35th row K2. Kfb. PM. ssk. yo. P1. MB. P1. yo. K2tog. C12B. I just have 10 sts to make the C12B. Any error on 35th row?

Hey there! I just took a look at the original pattern, and everything on this page is the same. Furthermore, no corrections have been submitted for the original pattern. I'm going to assume that means the pattern is okay! While there is always the possibility that something is incorrect on the original pattern, perhaps other knitters who have tried this project know what tripped you up and can offer some solutions. Happy knitting!

You should have 22 stitches after completing row 34, row 35 takes exactly 22 stitches to complete, so look to your previous rows for an error. Hope this helps, someone. Happy knitting.
