Much like the musical term capriccio, this shawl is a free form yet structured design to show off the beauty of the Jorstad Creek Antigua gradient yarn, especially when paired with the drape and shine of Iona. The three paneled shawl sits easily on the shoulders with or without pinning. The color notes (intermittent short row sections) may be placed where you want or follow the pattern. It’s up to you!
The shawl has stripes of a gradient yarn placed on a solid color background with drops of the gradient color artfully placed in the body and along the bottom border. It is fun to knit and easy to make it unique by changing the color notes to play your own tune.
Antigua is a soft, superwash merino suited for shawls, socks, finger-less mitts, etc. Antigua is dyed in a variety of ways to suit your needs such as sock blanks for long color runs and gradient kits. Antigua gradient kits include 8 shades of a color.
