All gradients in this series start in a vivid jewel tone and seamlessly desaturate into darkness as you work. This one way gradient starts out with intense crimson red, moves through almost aubergine, then fades to rich inky black. The red is fairly neutral, not too orange or purple.
This standard 739 yard length skein is perfect for most knitted shawls, and crocheted shawlettes/scarves. If you require more length, add some end yardage onto either (or both) ends of this gradient.
This shawl skein gradient is mathematically weighted to begin with black, so that the color changes get longer and longer as you work outwards towards the plum end. You can absolutely start with red end, and then you will have lots of red and a little black at the end. However, extra end color yardage is available in both red and black in 20g increments so you don’t have to worry about running short, no matter what color you start with.
