This beautiful crescent shawl , designed by Lisa K Ross of Paper Daisy Creastions, takes one (470 yard length) gradient skein and one skein of a high-contrasting solid color. Our shop model, knit by Robin, uses the Mimosa gradient paired with Razzmatazz, a deep raspberry solid. This design is a stunning foil for using very bright colors for a classically modern piece of wearable art!
The pattern is extremely well-written and the level of difficulty is relatively easy and is suitable for an adventurous beginner. The design begins with a garter tab cast on at the center top and is worked primarily in garter stitch with slipped stitches to create the accent stripes. Make sure when selecting colors for this shawl to use a solid which has a high contrast throughout the entire gradient.
