Before working with Caron x Pantone multishade yarn braid, separate each color link and wind into 5 separate balls for each braid.
Each color link will be referenced by its Pantone color # (see ball band)
Designate each yarn ball Contrast, A, B, C, D and E as noted in Materials section (or as desired).
Due to finite amount of yarn in each shade, pattern gauge must be matched to ensure successful results
Do not break contrast color - carry color not in use loosely up side of work.
