I watched an old YouTube video from a new to me podcaster, Chevas of Chevyrell’s Stuff. This one is swearing friendly and I love it but it may not be for everyone. But I digress, she had knit a couple of the pattern Into The Light Shawl pattern (rav link). And I’m obsessed I can’t think of anything else I want to knit right now. It’s a gorgeous triangle pattern with all garter stitch and beautiful yarn fading.
I haven’t let myself cast on yet but I did some stash diving in my fingering weight stash and pull some possible combinations. This pattern needs three colors of sock yarn with the yarn intended to be held double.
My first combination is a pink to purple kind of transition. A skein of Into the Whirled, Knitted Wit victory sock, and skein I forgot to read the label for. But this is a light to dark kind of fade.
My second combination is my runner up. It goes from a light blue and grey mix to blue hues to finally a decidedly more grey dominant mix. I know the left skein is from Knitterly things and I didn’t write down the rest, lol. I like this combo and its growing on me but I really am leaning strongly towards my first pick.
It was really fun to dig through and play with different combinations of all this fun yarn I bought many moons ago. I need to clear my needles a bit but this is for sure my next cast on!
Both are going to be gorgeous!
Dream knitting is one of my favorite things! I can’t wait to see what you choose. Those colorways are amazing – you really can’t go wrong.
I have followed Chevyrell’s podcast from the beginning. I love her brassy style. I made the ‘In the Light’ shawl during her knit-a-long and loved every minute. It was my first fade, and I loved the fringe and i-cord border of the design. You’ll enjoy the pattern immensely.
