Shanakiel

This shawl is part of the Knitting with Rainbows book, found in digital and print with digital format. 

The gently changing gradient of this yarn flows across the shawl, which is punctuated with contrasting colour either from the tail of your gradient or from a second yarn. Knit on the bias to allow the shawl colour and shape to work at different angles for a lovely end effect.
