Gorgeous Gradient 

I finished spinning this gradient from Zebisis Designs a couple of weeks ago.

This was the final product, 850 yards of 2ply, 3.5 ounces. On the skein winder the colors really show well :

It was cool when I washed this so it sat to dry on the bathroom radiator.

And, it sat skeined up like this until today.

It was time to wind it, and now I am looking for the perfect pattern.  I really want a rectangular scarf/shawl so that each color will take up approximately the same width.

The colors show really accurately.  What I cannot show is how incredibly soft and squishy this yarn is, the 50% silk not only makes the colors vibrant and saturated, but gives a sheen and softness to the yarn.

The perfect pattern search is on, no applied border, that way I can keep the colors intact. Any suggestions?
