This year’s shawl features a gradient of 4 colours of fingering weight yarn, 100g of each colour. It’s important to have a bit of contrast amongst your colours in order to see the details and crisp lines in the fabric. Solid, semi-solid, and lightly speckled fingering weight yarns are all great options for this year’s shawl. Try to avoid using very busy variegated and highly speckled yarns for all of the colours. It’s okay to have some painterly splashes for some of your colours. Think about your 4 colours as a crescendo of colour with colour A as the lightest colour and colour D as the darkest colour. Colour A - lightest colour Colour B - a little bit darker than A Colour C - a little bit darker than B and lighter than D Colour D - darkest colour
