The Mountain Colors Team is always dyeing up fun ideas. This inspiration is their popular Twizzle yarn in a variety of gradient colors. We chose 5 different colors, and the ladies in Montana created a light, a medium and a dark for each. The resulting Gradient colorways are fantastic, but every new yarn needs a great pattern ... so I got to work! I designed an asymmetrical shawl that is simple and stylish, with just enough pattern to make the knitting interesting ... and let the gradients do the work!

Mountain Colors Yarn Logo Twizzle Yarn

The shawl is knit in Twizzle, a soft blend of merino wool and silk plied together. Each strand has a beautiful combination of color with a subtle variation in color depth.

The new yarns are sold as Twizzle Gradient Packs. The yarn packs are actually three 250 yard skeins of the same color ... a dark, a medium and a light skein. The sample shawl is shown in the Harmony Mist colorway. The shawl would look fabulous in any of the other four gradient colorways ... Harmony Storm, Harmony Plum, Harmony Moss or Harmony Iris.

The Gradient-1 Shawl

“Gradient-1” is knit with one yarn pack. Start knitting the skinny end with the lightest color; build with the medium value and finally add a little texture with the darkest color at the wide end. The shawl is done primarily in stockinette stitch with garter ridges at the color changes and some lace patterning with the dark color. It measures 72” across the top edge and 22” at the center point. Bonus: the pattern is free with purchase of a Gradient Yarn Pack!

You will need a size US 6 (4.0 mm) 40” circular needle. Try the Addi Turbos or the Addi Rockets if you like a sharper point. Adjust the needle size to obtain a gauge 5.5 sts per inch in stockinette stitch if necessary. No notions required, except more chocolate.

You will note that pattern name is “Gradient-1” ... that might suggest there could be a sequel!
