Sari main pattern
The sample was knit on 2.75mm/US2 needles with colorshiftyarn sets:
The MC is a combination of two sets - Copper to Burgundy and Copper to Koi, a total of 16 shades
Each set is 640yds/584m, so the total MC is 1280yds/1168m
The main CC and small intarsia diamonds use one set of the warm Parade Progression, 8 shades, 640yds/584m
The intarsia stripe uses the cool Parade Progression, approximately 100 yds/90m
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.
Gauge: approximately 25sts and 28 rows = 4 inches/10cm in stranded pattern
Dimensions after blocking: 72in/180cm long x 25in/64cm
Techniques include back and forth stranding, intarsia and lace knitting on RS and WS rows, with 3 or 4 colors in each row.
