high gloss

How do you get six different color changes from just two yarns?

With a gradient, of course!

With a construction sequence inspired by the log cabin quilting block, this skinny shawl is designed in squishy, meditative, don’t-have-to-think-about-it garter stitch.

It’s worked from the neck down, and each section you knit moves the point of the shawl downwards and side to side, creating an interesting intersection of colors, stripes, and angles in the center.
