Dark blues to fuchsia to purple swirl together in a gradient to create this Cosmic Mess shawl. Its beaded brilliance is only enhanced by its soft merino wool yarn. Wrap yourself in its twinkling stars. The universe is calling.
Notes on Project
Once again, this pattern was a fun knit and I love knitting with Gobsmacked (formerly Gobstopper) Yarn. This yarn was a prize for my entry in the Don’t Panic MKAL contest on Ravelry. I love the colors in this cake. It’s just an explosion of the universe! I tried to back off some one the beads because I didn’t want to overpower the yarn and I think I found a good mix. I also used a seed stitch in the star pattern and like the results. This is the perfect pattern for 437 yard cakes of gradient yarn.
