Shades of Leaves Shawl
Errata: Chart B should not have had the last YO in the yellow repeat.
I designed this crescent shaped shawl with the colors of Autumn and Spring 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 have used Miss Babs Gradient Set and Knitpicks Palette. Either yarns have wonderful colors!
