I love to be in the woods or at the river in the summer. In the evening, we often make a little fire and enjoy staring into the flames. The little blue fire flamelets on the hottest spots of the fire inspired me to create this knitting pattern.

To represent the variation and shades of the flamelets, I chose to knit it in a beautiful gradient.

The flamelet shawl is a straight shawl, shaped diagonally by increases and decreases. It’s designed for gradient-dyed yarn and can be knitted as long as preferred.

It begins with a lace section in the darkest color (1C) of the gradient. The next section is a garter stitch band that alternates between the darkest and the second darkest color (2C) for 32 rows. In this manner, the shawl will be worked from the darkest to the lightest color. The construction ends with the last color (5C) and a lace section.
