Yesterday I released my latest pattern, Gradient Wrap Cowl. Similar to my cardigan pattern Anora, it was a fun way to play around with color gradients. And what better yarn to use for gradient projects than Quince & Co. With 53 colors available, there are so many possible gradient options you can have. For my sample I went with a purple gradient: I used Damson, Frank’s Plum and Crocus and used Frost as the main background color. Suzie and I were playing around with some other color ideas at KnitWit and below were some other ideas we came up with.
It’s a fun project that I hope people have just as much fun picking out the colors as they do knitting it up. When I started knitting the sample I found it was kind of addictive – there’s something about colorwork stripes that is so enjoyable – mindless yet fun knitting that I just couldn’t put down. Within a week the whole cowl was done and blocked. So if you start now you can have a few done to give away as presents for the holidays!
