I love using bold contrast in my work, particularly contrast of hue, which is the most intense type of contrast. This project uses yarn from The Verdant Gryphon in the three primary colors to demonstrate contrast of hue. For this design I broke up the bold colors with a neutral gray. Intense color can be wearable!

This shawl is easy and it is BIG! It works well in both fingering and sport weight yarns.
