I love the mini-skein trend that’s happening in the yarn world these days. Show me a pack of a mini-skein gradient set, and there’s a very strong probability I’m immediately handing over my credit card. That’s what happened with this gradient set from A Hundred Ravens. I was at an event, saw it, and without a thought, had to purchase it. It marinated in the stash a bit before turning into this stunning cowlette, but it was worth the wait. The stitch pattern combined with the rich colors in this gradient set are a perfect match.

Written Instructions Included for Charts


  • 400 yards of fingering weight yarn

  • 2 stitch markers
  • Tapestry needle

Pattern Notes
For the cowlette sample shown, the gradient kit was worked starting with the pinkest skein working to the darkest purple skein. When necessary, change skeins at the beginning of a row or round.

This pattern calls for 2 stitch markers. You may find it helpful to use 1 marker of one color and the second marker of another color. One marker will represent the halfway point of the piece and the other represents the beginning of round.
