Bruce (think of blueberry juice rather than a name!) is a shawl that is rich in color and texture and features a classic triangle shape. It begins at the narrow tip and grows into a beautiful accent piece which is easy to make as small or as large as you wish by working fewer or more rows.

Bruce is worked in three colors, which are used in an exact sequence allowing the colors to flow one into the other, giving the illusion of multiple hues and creating a beautiful rich gradient.
