I wanted to create something simple, with texture, that could show off the true beauty of this unique gradient yarn, and that’s how Dip in Blue was born.

Knitting this shawl is easier than you might think.
Written instrutions row by row slowly unfolds itself, without using any complicated techniques.

Dip in Blue is a triangle shaping shawl, designed in a fun exciting way, but still making your knitting easy enough to relax; also the possibilities to wear this shawl are almost endless.
