Pattern of the Week: Shape Shifter Scarf from Gradient Style
If you’ve been looking for the perfect knit to try your hand at gradient knitting, look no further than the Shape Shifter Scarf from Gradient Style.
This unique scarf highlights the changes in color-shifting yarns with a simple intarsia pattern worked in garter stitch. Its bold, graphic design is created by working from opposite ends of a ball of gradient yarn. And if you are still wary about diving into gradient knitting, you can easily simplify the design by working the scarf with one side in a color-shifting yarn and the other in a complementary solid color for a completely different look.
If the approachable design isn’t enough to lure you into your own Shape Shifter Scarf, then maybe the amazing yarn used will entice. Shown in The Blue Brick’s Berry Vanilla in Tobermory Worsted, this yarn comes from a must-see indie dyer for lovers of gradients and tonal yarns alike. You can’t find better yarns than these— known for their luxurious, inspired palettes—to feature in your own Shape Shifter Scarf!
