This shawl speaks to the big diffuse light of being in a solarium on a cloudy day. Pillowy and beautiful. It’s a nod towards having an excuse to stay inside and read and knit and drink tea and all those other
self-care rituals we all need to do more of.

This is the perfect project for that skein of amazing gradient yarn you have in your stash.

I’ve kept this shawl incredibly simple because you don’t need any lace to help show off this amazing yarn. It’s just a simple pleasurable knit with a nice cast off that plays into that dip-dyed feel that you get with gradient yarns.

This yarn is beautiful and addictive to knit with. Every row is just a delight in hand painted colour gradient goodness. I just love gradient yarns. Ombre beautifulness!

As with all my patterns if you don’t have the funds please just send me a message and I will gift the pattern to you!
