Geogradient Shawl

    • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

      Geogradient is a geometric explosion of color. Choose four colors of fingering weight yarn in a gradient color series. Organize your colors from light to dark as you begin knitting the center square. There is also a crochet option in Section 1 of the pattern. Continue with eyelet stripes that flow into a textured zig zag slip stitch pattern. The border of this modular shawl features a dip stitch technique, which is so much fun to knit! Finish the shawl with some festive fringe and drape this wearable work of art over your shoulders.
    • Finished Measurements 
      70” / 178cm wingspan length, 26” / 66cm tall measured along the center of the shawl from wingspan edge to border. Measurements taken after blocking.

      Fingering weight

      Approximately 1520yds / 1388m total
      Color A - 380yds / 347m

      Color D - 380yds / 347m

      If you are knitting a version with a smaller border you will require less yarn, but I recommend starting with the yardage recommendations above to ensure you do not run out of yarn.

      US 4 / 3.5mm in 40″ / 100cm length or size needed to obtain gauge
      US E / 3.5mm crochet hook for optional crocheted granny square

      4 stitch markers, tapestry needle

      24 sts & 48 rows = 4″ / 10cm in garter stitch before blocking
      Garter Stitch Swatch
      If you would like to see how your colors interact, cast on 30 stitches and knit some colorful stripes, knitting on the right side and wrong side for garter stitch. I recommend striping the colors by knitting 8 rows of each color, resulting in 4 garter ridges for each stripe like this…
      Knit 8 rows with color A.
      Knit 8 rows with color B.
      Knit 8 rows with color C.
      Knit 8 rows with color D.
      Repeat those stripes again to see your A, B, C, D striping effect and check your stitch gauge.
