Gradient Dyed By Shannon

About time I cast on this gorgeous custom dyed yarn for my daughters 1st Rainbow Dress for her 4th birthday in Feb. She has a 21” chest so I’ll knit that size and add extra length.

All done! Until she tried it on I wished that I’d maybe removed a bit of the green at the start of the ball so that the dress wasn’t quite so top heavy with green. But I wouldn’t have had enough yarn looking at it now, and the green looks really pretty on Penny.

Knitting up a gradient is so much fun though…if a bit difficult to put down as i kept saying to myself ‘just till the next colour change’ and then continuing on because of the gradual colour changes.
