In the realm of simplicity, true beauty resides…
As I envisioned this shawl, I found myself strolling along ancient streets and sun-drenched terraces, adorned in the elegance of a modest sundress and savoring the delicate effervescence of prosecco.
In those moments, all I needed was this understated shawl, gracefully draped across my shoulders, embracing the essence of carefree wanderings.

This summer shawl captures the essence of leisurely days and balmy evenings, offering a graceful accessory for warm weather.
Sotto il Sole follows a traditional path. Its central spine serves as a foundation, growing with each right-side row as stitches multiply along both edges and either side of the spine.
Evoke the spirit of timeless elegance as you embark on this knitting journey, where simplicity intertwines with timeless tradition.
