From designer Xandy Peters: The colors in this shawl are inspired by a berry crumble that I ate in Edinburgh. The colors smoothly fade from purple to pink to yellow and look a lot like the berry filling soaking into the top crust of my dessert. The yarn colors do not need to be similar in order to create the fade. The combination of lace, brioche, and garter stitch is arranged to blend any shades together. Make sure your yarns have good contrast so that the stitch work is well defined.
