About Giant Gradient, Simple Shawl Free Knitting Pattern
Simplicity. Sometimes nothing else will do.
This deceptively simple heart-shaped shawl is designed in squishy, meditative, don’t-have-to-think-about-it garter stitch. Perfect for new knitters, soothing frazzled nerves, or when you need a project you can pick up and put down easily.
But don’t think for a moment that this shawl isn’t interesting.
With speckles and subtle variegations and color changes every few rows, the hand-dyed gradient yarn holds your interest from cast on to bind off.
As each color unfurls and reveals itself in sequence, you’ll find yourself thinking “I’ll stop after the next color change. Just one more. Next one, really.”
Just don’t stay up too late knitting, ok?
