I recently launched some new gradient packs – Sylvan Tiger Yarn Lethera Shetland Gradients. Each gradient is created by over dyeing 4 different natural shades of British Shetland 4ply yarn with natural dyes, the natural shades of the yarn create the gradients. The yarn is beautifully woollen spun and produces a squishy fabric, both warm and light to wear. There are currently six shades to choose from: Raspberry Ganache, Chocolate Orange, Bumblebee, Grass Green, Baltic and Dilly Dilly.
Each 100g pack costs £16 and contains:
100g / 350m / 380yd made up of 4 x 25g / 87m / 95yd mini skeins.
I’ve just launched a pattern for the gradient packs: Baltic Gradient Shawl and Mitts. The pattern is available on Ravelry and costs £3.50, though there’s 25% off until Sunday 12 June, no code needed.
The cosy garter stitch shawl is nice easy knitting, with interest provided by the decreases and changing colour sections. Perfect TV or travel knitting! Along with the mitts, it is designed to make the most of Sylvan Tiger Yarn Lethera Gradient packs.
The Central Spine of the shawl is knitted first, then stitches are picked up along the edge and worked out to the tip. Stitches are then picked up for the top and then bottom edges. The squares of the Central Spine are then replicated on the mitts to use up the last of the gradient colours and create a matching set.
