Errata: Chart B should not have had the last YO in the yellow repeat.
I designed this crescent shaped shawl with your favorite shades of lace in mind. It uses 5 colors of gradient shades of sock yarn.

The color transition is worked in 3 rows of seed st. This gives a slight rick-rack sort of transition between the colors.

I recommend using Miss Babs Gradient Set or Knitpicks Palette. Either yarns have wonderful colors!

For the Knitpicks Palette, I used:
#24586 Silver, #24244 Marble Heather, 23731 Ash, #24243 Asphalt Heather, #23729 Black

Finished Size: Unblocked 38” wide by 13” deep, blocked 51” wide by 17 1/2” deep
