Above The Fold

My latest knitting design, Above The Fold, is now live!


This shawl uses two matching gradients to create an optical illusion of one larger gradient that has been folded over in the middle. The pattern is written to make the most of any gradient yarn, regardless of its yardage. Choose two 50g gradients, typically intended for identical socks, or you can opt for two full 100g (or larger!) gradient cakes in the same colorway. You are also free to adjust the amount of the coordinating solid for even more flexibility in sizing. You can even work with a different weight of yarn if you like, but keep in mind this could impact the finished size of your shawl considerably.
