They are a big hit, maybe even considered the next trend in the makers community: gradient yarn cakes with beautiful, subtle color changes. Many brands jumped on the bandwagon and started selling their own unique gradient color combinations.
It has been a big success in Europe for the last few years and finally also American brands started adding gradient yarn cakes to their collection.
Gradient yarn cakes are light weight multicolour yarns and often are between 600m / 656 yds and 1000m / 1094 yds. This means you only need 1 cake to complete a whole project like a shawl.
Today I have a new triangle crochet shawl pattern to share: the Stripe Me Shawl! As the name says, it features stripes.. A lot of stripes! It’s a quite different design compared to my previous shawls.
I wanted to make something different that gives a playful touch to simple outfits. By making one part of the shawl striped horizontally and the other part striped vertically, a unique effect was created.
