New Pattern: Beddington

When Paula at Done Roving contacted me about designing a shawl with her new Frolicking Feet DK Gradients yarn, I was happy to help. My love of gradient yarns grows more each day, and I was excited to design a shawl with it. So here it is - Beddington.
$6.50
It's a top-down crescent-shaped shawlette. It uses just one ball of the Done Roving Frolicking Feet DK Gradients, but there's pattern notes on how to make the shawl larger if you want. I think a giant DK gradient shawl using 2 balls of yarn would be so beautiful!

$6.50

The color I used is #4 Maine Wild Blueberries and guess what? I have a second ball to give to one lucky winner! Just leave a comment on this post and I will be selecting a winner at random on Feb. 5, 2015. Just leave your Ravelry name in your comment so I have a way to contact you should you win.
Tomorrow I'll be posting some photos on how I like to block these types of shawls. The top-down shawl is so fun to knit, but I think the blocking is the best part! I'm excited to show everyone how I block my shawls and I'm interested to hear how other people like to do it.
 

Hope you enjoy this new pattern and I can't wait to give away that ball of yarn to one of you. Good luck! :)

    Haven't been a big fan of gradient yarn. Striping yes, but not gradient. This shawl may change my mind.

  22. Another beautiful pattern! I keep trying to figure out how to get Done Roving yarn, but no LYS in the area carries it.
