I set out to design a triangular shawl using two colours of my blue label yarn. I knew that I wanted to use the two colours in an interesting way, stripes are awesome, but I wanted texture! Just like the colours subtly shift from one to the next, I wanted the shawl to graduate from a textured center, to a leafy border, to the lightest, airiest crocheted cast off. Subtlety is key when choosing colours for this shawl, I suggest picking two colours that have similar tones, even some overlapping shades would be beautiful. It gives the illusion of one amazing, shifting colour and will make people wonder how you achieved such a dynamic look!
