Gradiently Yours

We almost all have a gradient hanging around the stash or our color palette is so similar that we could make a gradient from our leftovers. Gradiently Yours is the perfect shawl/ette for those yarns! 

I was asked by Adina, the owner of Cloth Carousel, to design a shawl for the new yarn Zauberperlen by Schoppel-Wolle. The yarn comes in a ring and has each individual color already wound into a ball, how simple is that! 

I chose a simple triangle shape with a series of drop stitches to compliment the gradient, I didn't want the pattern to overpower the yarn but I also didn't want the knit to be too simple. This is a great social project for the holidays! It's so easy to memorize which makes easy to put down and pick back up.

Here you can see the drop stitches featured and how they run through the gradient. When you're looking for yarn to make this shawl you can pretty much use any yarn you have in stash. The only changes you would need to make is adjusting your needle size for the weight of yarn you pick. I can't wait to see the combinations people come up with!
