By using a complementary contrast skein for the lace a field is created upon which the dazzling mixture of beads can sparkle. The two different sections of the shawl are tied together by choosing a mixture of beads that reflect the colors found in the gradient.
The shawls as pictured are in three different bases from The Unique Sheep. The Gradience sets are 6 mini-skeins at 25 g per mini-skein. These colors are available in kits with the beads exclusively from earthfaire.com
The Yellow/Orange/ Teal is Verve; 100% Merino, 400 yards/100 g (color names Chimera & Naiad).
The Blue/Purple/Charcoal is in Luxe; 25% Silk/75% Merino, 400 yards/100g (color names Arda & Vulcan).
The Pink/Green/Mauve is in Tinsel Toes; 50% Superwash Merino/50% Tencel 368 yards/100 g (color names Slyph & Persephone).
The texture portion of the shawl is quite easy with the lace adding to the complexity. Lace skills required are YO, ssk, k2tog, s1-k2tog-psso, and central double decreases.
The beads are applied with a tiny crochet hook. If you have never done this it is super easy and I have made a video to show you how.
The pattern requires 904 size 6/0 beads (~75 g).
