Join the KAL in the Casapinka Group and win a LYDIA pink Mr. Pinkerson kit (5 gradients and one skein of Bliss in Seattle Sky, 400 yards)! Finish date is April 2 and prizes are announced April 3.

Please make sure you have the updated version of the pattern! There should only be 4 rows of each gradient stripe knitted, not 10.

A collaboration with LYDIA yarn, Mr. Pinkerson is a reversible crescent shawl that uses approximately 80 yards of each gradient color (x5 colors). The pattern is all in stockinette and slipped stitches and only one color is worked at a time so it is a simple pattern. It looks beautiful worn around the neck as a scarf as well. You will love it!

Make spring come early (if you’re in the Northern hemisphere) or enjoy it in the nice weather (if you’re lucky enough to be somewhere else, haha!)

Finished measurements: 64” along bottom edge after blocking.

The border is an array of linen stitch (c’mon, anyone can stand linen stitch for a border; the results are entirely worth it)! Add some cheer to your neutral wardrobe with some fun gradient knitting.


US 6/4mm 24” circular needle - not knit in the round.

US 4/3.5mm 24” circular needle for border
