Repartee (noun)
rep•ar•tee | \ re-pər-ˈtē, -ˌpär-,-ˈtā \

1: a quick and witty reply
2: a succession or interchange of clever retorts: amusing and usually light sparring with words

Repartee shawl is an interchange of simple patterns between 2 contrasting yarn in fun and amusing way. To make it even more interesting, yarns picked for that pattern gradually change colors. There are many possibilities to steer the “conversation” the way you want.

100% cotton yarn used for the sample. It doesn’t stretch as much as wool yarn of the same thickness.

Shawl is crescent-shaped, worked from neck down. The final shape is achieved by blocking.

Pattern combines sections of garter stitch, stockinette stitch, slip stitch, and easy lace.

You can work lace sections from written instructions or the charts.

Yarn: Fingering weight yarn, that gradually changes colors:
2 skeins in contrasting colors

Suggested yarn: Wolle’s Yarn Creations Color Changing Cotton - 100% Cotton

Needles: US #3 / 3.25 mm circular needles (or as required to meet gauge)

Notions: Stitch markers, darning needle

Gauge: 20 sts x 36 rows = 4” in stockinette after wet blocking. Exact gauge is not important for this project, it is given to get an idea of how dense knitted fabric has to be to get the size within the same yardage.

Sizing: 74”x 22” (blocked)
