Coastal Gradient is the fingering-weight version of my worsted-weight Gradient Wrap Cowl and perfect for mini-skein sets such as Knitted Wit's Gumballs. It is knit lengthwise (working back and forth on a circular needle), and features 6 different sections of stripes using 6 gradient colors (although less colors can be used too). Once complete, stitches are picked up on either end to create button bands. The finished piece looks like a scarf (and can be worn that way too if you prefer), but you can also wrap it around your neck and then button to secure in place to wear as a cowl.
