Cast a spell this fall with this collaboration with Blue Moon Fiber Arts. Tina created gorgeous gradient sets in her Featherlight yarn. I created a super-fun and very wearable shawl utilizing the color shifts inherent in the gradient sets…

In order to make
a shawl that’s great
gather your tools.
Don’t be a fool…
order a kit.
And never quit
until you’re done.
But have some fun
for this shawl is rad…
and you’ll be sad
if you miss out on this
and all the bliss
from making a shawl
to wear all fall.

Yarn
approximately 900 yards total fingering-weight yarn. I used Blue Moon Fiber Arts Featherlight in Spooky Gradient (six skeins, 150 yards each).

Finished measurements
Wingspan: 65”; depth at center: 10”.

The instructions are written to take full advantage of the Blue Moon Fiber Arts Featherlight Gradient Kits, but any set of yarns you like together would work for this pattern. I do suggest doing some sort of a gradient-type of thing… A three color sprinkle-y speckle-y version is definitely in my future. I’m planning on using three sprinkle-y yarns in varying intensities that have colors in common, and I’ll employ the same technique of using cA held doubled, then cA & cB together, then cB held doubled, then cB & cC together, etc. This pattern was made to play, so have fun stash diving OR shopping for yarns to make this shawl.
