I already knew Miss Babs’ wonderful yarns from having designed Alpine Water Shawl for her in the past, but when I saw a beautiful gradient shawl online, I asked Miss Babs whether she ever custom-dyed gradient sets, and she replied she would be happy to develop a color set specially for me.

After we had talked about possible colors, I forwarded color samples found on Pinterest in my favorite purplish hues, which Miss Babs used for inspiration to develop a gem of a unique purple gradient set.

The colors and slip stitch pattern were perfect to show the beauty of Miss Babs’ gradient set and reminded me of all the different colors and shapes of sea glass, hence the name: “Sea Gems”.

And this is how this asymmetrical triangle shawl came to life.

“Sea Gems” was designed in collaboration with Miss Babs Yarns. See amazing yarn kits for this pattern developed by Miss Babs.

Materials:
* Miss Babs Yummy 2-Ply (100% Merino): 113g/ 400 yards 366 meters and Miss Babs Yummy 2-Ply Toes (100% Merino): 37g/ 133 yards 122 meters.

7 colors: approx. 400 yards 366 meters of Main Color (MC) and approx. 90 yards 85 meters per each of 6 Contrasting Colors (CC1, CC2, CC3, CC4, CC5, CC6).
The sample is knit in colorways “Fleur de Sel” (MC), “Purple Urchin” (CC1), “Sea Urchin” (CC2), “Blue Mussel” (CC3), “Paua” (CC4), “Spiny” (CC5), and “Umi Tongue” (CC6).

Please note that you will need almost an entire skein of MC yarn to make this shawl. Check your gauge to make sure you will not run out of yarn.
