Cardoon is a hand-dyed continuous gradient celebrating the unusual colors of blooming artichokes. Starting with pale blue-violet, continuing through violet, red plum, sage and olive green, and culminating in chartreuse

I will be dyeing a batch of Cardoon next week, and I'm happy to dye one for you. Since all my gradients are slightly different and I want you to have the one that calls to you, you'll have several gradients to choose from.
How pre-order works: Add this listing to your cart, and be sure to leave me your email address when you check out. I will dye the gradients, process them, and photograph them. Next, the gradients will be posted as reserve listings in the shop and I'll email you with a unique check-out code when they're posted. You can select your favorite and check out using your unique code.
The dyeing technique I use to make gradients delivers brilliant and saturated colors in a range of variegated, speckled, and semi-solid effects. Each new shade of the gradient brings something new to your needles.
Wondering what to make with this gradient? You have lots of great options! Please visit the Pattern Library.
If you'd like extra yarn to make a larger project, I'm happy to custom dye whatever coordinating yarn you need. Questions? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
