Ascleit Cowl

I love the amazing variety of gradient yarn sets, with their gradual colour changes, and am like a magpie when I see them. But then I’m never that sure what to do with them when I get them home (other that put them on a shelf to look pretty). The woven simplicity of Linen Stitch, and alternating with a neutral yarn allows the colour shifts to shine without being overwhelming.
