These colors remind me of those days when you aren’t quite sure whether the sun will come out from behind the clouds. When it starts to peek out and warm your cheeks, all the colors around you brighten. I designed the gentle, barely-there gradient to look stunning when wrapped around your neck, and the pops of main color scattered through the gradient provide a pleasing contrast and highlight the wavy stitch patterns. This subtle pattern fade takes advantage of a wonderfully dyed gradient from Sunshine Yarns, the high contrast pop of color lets you add your own bit of personality to the wrap.
