Gradient Yarn: Gularis

Sample shown in Squash Blossom - all photos in this color are courtesy Lynn Di Cristina
This week's Monday Gradient Yarn Ideas installment features Gularis, an easy-to-knit cowl that has the distinct advantage of being suitable for both Pebble Sock & Lilt Sock Gradient Yarns.  The pattern calls for US 5 needles, which either yarn knits up well on and still has a lot of drape.  I chose to knit mine out of a Lilt Terra Cotta Gradient and I was surprised to find that the lace pattern was far more intuitive than I had guessed when first looking at Lynn's sample.
Given the yardage I had at the end, I could very well have added a couple of pattern repeats to make the cowl long enough to wear doubled up.  This is definitely the kind style of garment that is great for adding a flash of color and texture over some jeans and casual shirt.
I hope you'll check out Lynn's pattern, and while you're there take a look at her pattern photography.  I love the compositions and color choices, and I know she takes great pride in making the time to get it right.
This has been our 11th post in a series about our Gradient Yarns and ideas we think are a fantastic use of them.  We hope you're enjoying our series - thank you for checking them out.  We're always looking for interested designers as well as fun pattern ideas.  Feel free to pass us a note at blacktrillium [at] popculturezoo [dot] com with comments, questions or suggestions.
