Worked in one-of-a-kind Fates & Graces cake dyed gradients, this shawl’s central motif of concentric bands of five colors radiates outwards and repeats, giving each color a chance to shine twice. Garter stitch ridges separate each color, adding beautiful surface texture and creating a pleasing structure of stripes and angles.
