Color Notes: Fade through your MC whenever you like while adding CC stripes randomly throughout the pattern. To get a color fade, start with your first MC until you are ready to stripe it with your second MC. Work 2 row stripes to fade your MC’s together until you want to work the next MC on its own.
The sample scarf faded through 5 MC’s like this…
MC1 striped with MC2 working 2 rows with each color.
SECTIONS 7 & 8
SECTIONS 9 & 10
MC2 striped with MC3 working 2 rows with each color.
SECTIONS 11 & 12
MC3 striped with MC4 working 2 rows with each color.
Continue repeating the last 4 rows of SECTION 13 using MC4 and then fade into the last MC5 shade until the scarf is the length you want.
