I chose to use this amazing yarn from wolltraum.com
“My Melody is a hand wound yarn made with love.
The gradients are done by tying little strands of colours together and the little knots can be worked in with no problem.
The yarn is multiple wound, that means the single strands are lying next to each other.
You can use whatever hook size you prefer whether you want your project to be looser or tighter.
The composition of the yarn is 50% cotton and 50% acryl “
I chose the colour “Eiszeit” which is a beautiful gradient from soft white, through silver to a clear sky blue.
Perfect for wearing with jeans and a t-shirt in the summer.
I used the 4-ply version, 7oz/200g which costs $21.70 plus shipping, and a 4mm clover armour hook.
Because the yarn is not twisted I found I needed to work with VERY relaxed hands and mega light tension.
The pattern for the “Virus Shawl” was originally done as a chart, but there are now written versions and also these amazing videos by Woolpedia
Once you have the 4 row repeat you just keep repeating and go as large or small as you want.
