GAUGE

14 sts and 26 rows to 10 cm over garter stitch using 6mm needles.

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 label).

Designate each different shade of 5 separate colors as 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 tension must be matched to ensure successful results.
