Gradient Blanket 

Feza Gradient Kits

Gradient Kits!

We just received a shipment of gradient kits from Feza Yarns in 9 colors! Each kits contains four hanks of hand dyed yarn and a baby blanket pattern. Each blanket kit begins with white, then gets progressively darker and richer, ending with a bold finale. The blanket is a simple knit -- all stockinette with a garter stitch border. The super soft 50/50 cotton/viscose yarn is machine washable and perfectly soft for baby.

While clicking around Ravelry, we also stumbled upon the Gradient Color Block Tee, a pattern that just happens to be designed specifically for these kits! Sized XS-3X, the top is knit side-to-side in color blocks, with minimal seaming, and the finished product features a high-to-low hemline. Depending on size, only one or two kits would be required to make the Tee!
