I love the amazing variety of gradient yarn sets, with their gradual colour changes, and am like a magpie when I see them. But then I’m never that sure what to do with them when I get them home (other that put them on a shelf to look pretty). The woven simplicity of Linen Stitch, and alternating with a neutral yarn allows the colour shifts to shine without being overwhelming.

Ascleit is a slouchy hat, designed to complement the Ascleit Cowl, with the colour patterning reversed. There is great potential for using up oddments of yarn, or playing with some of the many fantastic sets of mini-skeins on the market at the moment.
