This shawl design features a gradient handspun yarn. This is a 3 ply handspun from fibre which has been hand-dyed in a long colour gradient. Fibres are from Allons-Y! FiberArts.

If you do not spin, you can substitute a commercial fingering weight colour gradient, a set of miniskeins in a colour gradient, or even a solid coloured yarn. The sample is shown in 150 gm/350m of 3 ply heavy fingering weight handspun.

This shawl is an asymmetric triangle that is worked from one side to the other, increasing the number of stitches until 70% of the yarn has been used. Short rows are used to shape the smaller decrease portion, ending with a crochet bindoff (which can also be done with knitting needles, instructions included).

The difficulty level is considered to be intermediate. Both charts as well as written instructions are included.

Our main shade garden consists of a collection of Japanese maples and companion perennials including hostas, ferns, trilliums, astilbes, etc. The backdrop is a 10 acre stand of Eastern white pine in the neighbouring property. Several of the Japanese maples are 30 years old, and the artistic shapes of their branches inspired this design.
