This stunning crescent-shaped shawl was designed by Ariane Gallizzi exclusively for Izzy Knits, inspired by the fade fashion made popular by Andrea Mowry and Steven West.
In Izzy's California Fade Shawl, Arianne used three complimentary colorways, held double in different ratios to create a fade. As a bonus, the yarn, held double, creates a wonderfully squishy fabric that is both weighty and airy. Beginning knitters will have little trouble with the basic stitches used: knit, purl, yarn over, knit 2 together, slip slip knit, and knit front back.
