Short Description: Named for the fiery colours of Autumn leaves the gradient set of the first sample reflects, Blaise Shawl is a versatile shawl. Simple triangular shaping is easy to knit and wear and the textured slip stitch gives many opportunities to have fun with colour. Contrast a gradient set with a solid colour or work two coordinating skeins together to show each other off. Leave the edge plain or add the perfect finishing flourish with tassels or fringe - either in a solid colour or gradients. The hardest part will be deciding which way to wear yours - the back is just as pretty as the front!
