Juliet is also available as part of the Seven Colorwork Adventures eBook.

A richly textured vibrant scarf or shawl in two colors. The pattern combines stranded knitting with (optional) zigzags of reverse stranding and a border of corrugated ribbing.

All samples were knit on 2.75mm/US2 needles with colorshift yarns.

The narrow scarf version was knit with 2 half sets of yarn:
MC Violet to Hollywood Cerise color bridge 320yds/290m
CC Pale Lavender Gradation 480yds/440m

Unfortunately, ColorShift is currently unavailable and would appear to be discontinued. If you are looking for substitute yarns, ColorShift Yarn is described in the Etsy Store as a two-ply jumper weight (fingering) yarn milled from 23.5 micron superwash Merino wool that knits up at about 8 st/in on US1-2 needles (2.25-2.75mm). There is a Gorgeous Gradients group here on Ravelry which might be a good starting point for substitute gradient yarns, and you can click on the “yarn ideas” tab above to see what yarns have been used in Ravelry projects.

Finished dimensions after blocking and unpinning: 40in/102cm long x 9.5in/24cm.

The pdf includes 2 extra variations - a version with narrower zigzags of reverse stranding and a version with no reverse stranding, shown here in red and orange.

Approximate gauge for all samples: 28sts and 26 rows = 4 inches in stranded knitting.

The pdf contains 4 pages of charts and short written instructions.
