Rainbow Kerchief

I'm a big fan of anything Kauni. Proof here and a Funky Grandpa in the works...

The most popular colourway (by far) is the EQ rainbow. It's crazy, but so impressive. I had to knit it up and I chose to tame it down with some neutral grey alpaca. Here is the result :
I used UandIKnit’s Silk Garden Classic as inspiration for this shawl. I wanted something simple to feature the gradient. The pattern is not available anymore, but it's a fairly intuitive design.
Like I wrote on my project page, I find the spine is a little too deep and wish I went for a crescent shape, but I still like it very much. Although the middle length is hanging, it holds itself real well (thank you wool and alpaca!) and stays in place however I chose to wear it.
I used the remaining of my Kauni to make tassels that I love! I think they're cute and they help tie up my shawl when I head out in the cold. 
My Kauni obsession is not over and I long for an intricate stranded and steeked cardigan. I'm off to search for patterns yet again!
