Blue is one of the most calming, relaxing and serene colors. In this case, somewhere in between navy and sky-blue, it particularly lends itself to creating very unique and peaceful items. This particular shawl makes excellent use of this color, as the top and most staurated layer in the gradient. It is very definite, but through the color gradient and breezy texture, it is a soothing progression. It is an ideal accent to a summer outfit. Because of it’s shallow design, this shawl functions well as a shoulder throw, and does not hang down the back like deeper triangles. A link to the free pattern is at the end of the post.
