TENSION

15 sts and 20 rows to 10 cm using 6mm needles in stocking stitch.

The instructions are written for smallest size. If changes are necessary for larger size(s) the instructions will be written thus ( ). When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes.

Notes - Before working with Caron� x Pantone� multishade yarn braid, separate each color link and wind into 5 separate balls for each braid.

See charts for designation of each shade from multi-color braids.

Due to finite amount of yarn in each shade, pattern tension must be matched to ensure successful results.

Instarsia Note - When working from charts, use separate ball of yarn for each separate area of color in the design. To change colors, wind the 2 colors around each where they meet, on WS, to avoid a hole.
