Gradients transition along a long arrow shape for a fun scarf or dramatic wrap. Two ombré colourways are worked in a simple intarsia pattern. Tassels dangle from each of the corners.

The scarf size uses one ball each of two different colourways and the shawl size requires two balls each. Plan the direction you want each colourway to progress. You many need to begin with the centre of one ball and the outside of the other.

For the larger shawl, join the second ball of each colour beginning with the same colour as the first ball finished. Because there will be an excess of this colour in the centre of the shawl, the tassels should be made from this colour.

This knitting pattern includes written directions, a schematic with measurements and instructions for maximizing your yarn with the help of a digital scale.

Substitution Notes
Choose a fingering weight (or sock yarn) ombré or gradient yarn in two colourways. It would also look great with two solid/tonal yarns or a solid colour paired with a gradient yarn. The yarn specified in the pattern is a single ply merino, but multi-plied yarns and a full range fibres would also be great. They key for this project is the colour choice.

Techniques
Long tail cast on, intarsia, garter stitch, kfb increases / k2tog decreases, tassels.
