Colourblind is an extra-long and narrow triangular shawl that is, ironically, worked in five colours. Light grey at the tip fades into vivid colour, using the Bee Brioche stitch for a brilliant optical blending effect. The stitch pattern also gives the shawl a wonderfully soft and squishy texture.
Have fun watching your colours mix together as you knit! In the original shawl, the first colour is a light grey, colours two, three and five make a gradient and colour four adds some contrast. But you can easily deviate from this scheme and make your own colourful visions come true!
