You can create your own ombre—with a colorway that’s true to-you—using odd balls of solid colors and tweeds in your stash • You don’t need colors that transition smoothly—there’s a way to make it look like the color changes are subtle even when they aren’t! • Shawl pictured wraps nicely around a size 18 gal yet back doesn’t drag on the floor! • Includes chart AND row-by-row instructions • Easy seven-row repeat (five rows are identical) • Distinct stitching at both edges of Row 8 so it’s easy to find your place if you lose track • Make to any length because worked bottom up; just stop when you’re happy with the width • Decide the width you want along the top edge and multiply by 41% to figure out how long the shawl will be when it’s finished.
