It’s impossible not to be inspired by the vibrant colors and unique marling effect of Plied Yarns. When it launched last year, I realized I couldn’t just choose one color to knit with – I wanted to try a bunch! I picked out a fun four-color combo for the Greydient shawl by Jana Huck, and I love how it turned out! The slow color shifts of the yarn turned a very stark geometric design into a softer effect with more depth of color. Because the Plied palette of colors play together so well, I was able to choose four different colorways that were all plied with grey in them. I like to describe the finished shawl as “if you got a graffiti artist to spray paint a picture of a shawl on a concrete wall.”
I did modify the pattern a bit to only use one skein of each color, and simply ended my shawl a few repeats earlier in the final section. The shawl is still a good size. If you wanted to complete it as written, you would need two skeins of your CC3. The colors I used are: Lady Day, Poe, Webb, and Vacants to Value.
Teddy picked out some four color combos to inspire you! These would also work for The Exchange Scarf!
