Grab your favorite gradient skein and needles and let the colors of the yarn take you on an adventure.

At the Oasis Hideaway, the fronds of the green palms softly sway as a cooling breeze stirs the golden sands that stretch every distance. The silk fabric shimmers as the warmth of the sun peaks through the swaying fronds and warms the cooling shade of the hideaway. The oasis of the sparkling blue water colors the gradient of the landscape as the camels recharge. Far into the distance, perhaps only a mirage, the next oasis beckons in violet on the horizon.

For now, it’s time to sit back and relax, to hideaway in the oasis and knit the colors that surround us.

Oasis Hideaway is a crescent-shaped shawl worked from the top-down to the border. Charted and written instructions. US and metric measurements.

The shawl is easily adjustable in size, by working additional border rows, to have a custom size to use up more yarn, knit every color from your gradient into your shawl or add extra length.

The Oasis Hideaway is knit with a camel/silk blend gradient, to have the warmth and softness of the camel with the sheen of the silk combined with the beauty of a hand-dyed gradient. Your private oasis. Palms and golden sand not included.
