Whenever we're looking for a great "fade" pattern, Stephen West is one of our first stops. Radiate is an easy garter stitch, top-down semi-circle shawl designed to showcase beautiful colors. I-cord edges frame the shawl while yarn overs form the smooth shape. The yarn overs increase in size as the rows get longer for a radiating effect.
We've used Spun Right Round Classic Sock in a three beautiful shades of teals, greens and moody blues - evocative of the light across a lakeside shore shifting from late afternoon to dusk.
