All about the gradients again!

Friday heralds a second day of gradient yarn love with the ‘Xena Cowl’ by Christina Wilkins. It’s an eye-catching combination of a zesty gradient dyed yarn with a cleverly chosen solid contrast to make the colours in this design really pop.

You could tone it down with muted shades in your colour choice, or try a long repeat self stripe or mini skein set to ramp up the colour changes. It would work just as well with two semi solids by themselves, as the motif is interesting enough to accommodate that. Base-wise, a nice 100% merino high twist yarn would be my preference.

What would you knit yours in?
