This pattern was designed for the 2017 Gauge Dye Works Yarn & Pattern Club. It’s now available for everyone! You can also get it as part of Knit Outside, a book of all three 2017 club patterns.

The yarn designed for the Knit Outside patterns are available to order from Gauge Dye Works.

A flowing springtime gradient splashed with short row “leaves” turns this semi-circular pi shawl into a stunning statement piece — and the perfect wrap for your outdoor adventures. And the best part? It’s worked in a unique self-striping yarn that shifts and blends, with golden sections appearing as you knit to tell you when to work each Leaf. It’s addictively mesmerising! I worked closely with Catherine of Gauge Dye Works to design this special shawl. It was an unusual collaboration, in that the yarn colourway and the pattern were developed in tandem to create a knitting experience that’s fun, engaging, and reflects the beauty of the great outdoors. Goldstream is knit entirely in garter stitch; instructions are included for substituting a non- striping yarn.
