Art Deco Sunburst Shawl

Until this week, summer here in Denmark has been rather cool, much colder than I am used to from California. I started making this shawl when the weather started to turn nice, but evenings were still too cool to wear sleeveless tops and dresses.

The pattern is based off the stained glass window in the council chambers of the Buffalo City Hall in New York. I have always been drawn to the geometric representations of nature in art deco designs. The sunburst of this stained glass window seemed like the perfect inspiration to adapt into a crochet design.
