Shading by Audrey Knight


DK (11 wpi) ?
17 stitches and 30 rows = 4 inches
in garter stitch, holding 2 strands together
US 10 - 6.0 mm
4 inches x 76 inches/10cm x 193cm, including fringe

Gradations from dark to light to dark again are created by working with two strands of yarn. Starting off with two strands of the same color, then holding one strand of that color along with a strand of the next lighter or darker color makes the transition from shade to shade. This shaded scarf uses 5 colors. I like using tweed or heathered yarns to achieve subtle blending.
