Mardyke

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

This scarf is ideal for using a subtle gradient set. You can use either a single gradient skein or several mini-skeins that blend smoothly together. The scarf uses a double bias to make for a very interesting knit, with both the fabric and stitch pattern bias creating a parallelogram that has a wavy biased edge.
