INSTRUCTIONS:

Notes:

  • Before working with Caron® x Pantone™ multi-shade yarn braid, separate each color link and wind them 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 MC. Carry color not in use loose across side of work.
  •  To change colors, work to last 2 loops on hook of first color. Draw new color through last 2 loops and proceed with new color.
  •  Ch 2 at beg of rnd does not count as st.


With MC, ch 96 (multiple of 16 ch). Join with sl st to first ch, taking care not to twist chain. PM for beg of rnd.

Rnd 1: Ch 2. 1 hdc in each ch around. Join A with sl st to first hdc. 96 hdc.

Rnd 2: With A, ch 1. Working in back loops only, 1 sc in same sp as last sl st. 1 sc in next hdc. *Ch 2. Skip next 6 hdc. [(1 dc. Ch 1) 6 times. 1 dc] all in next hdc – Shell made. Ch 2. Skip next 6 hdc.** 1 sc in each of next 3 hdc. Rep from * 4 times more, then from * to ** once. 1 sc in last sc. Join with sl st to first sc.

Rnd 3: Ch 1. Working in both loops, 1 sc in same sp as last sl st. *Ch 2. Skip next (sc, ch 2, dc). (Bobble in next ch-1 sp. Ch 1. Skip next dc) 6 times. Ch 1. Skip next (ch 2, sc).** 1 sc in next sc. Rep from * 4 times more, then from * to ** once. Join MC with sl st to first sc. Break A.

Rnd 4: With MC, ch 2. 1 hdc in same sp as sl st. **1 hdc in each of next 2 ch. (1 hdc in next bobble. 1 hdc in next ch-1 sp) 5 times. 1 hdc in next bobble. 1 hdc in each of next 2 ch.** 1 hdc in next sc. Rep from * 4 times more, then from * to ** once. Join B with sl st to first hdc.

Rnd 5: With B, ch 4 (counts as dc and ch 4). [(1 dc. Ch 1) twice. 1 dc] in same sp as sl st. *Ch 2. Skip next 6 hdc. Working in back loops only, 1 sc in each of next 3 hdc. Ch 2. Skip next 6 hdc.** Shell in next hdc. Rep from * 4 times more, then from * to ** once. (1 dc. Ch 1) 3 times in first hdc. Join with sl st to 3rd ch of ch 4. 

Step 2

Rnd 6: Sl st in first ch-1 sp. Ch 2 (does not count as st). Bobble in same sp as last sl st. (Ch 1. Bobble in next ch-1 sp) twice. *Ch 2. Skip next (dc, ch 2, sc). 1 sc in next sc. Ch 2. Skip next (sc, ch 2, dc).** (Bobble in next ch-1 sp. Ch 1. Skip next dc) 5 times. Bobble in next ch-1 sp. Rep from * 5 times more, then from * to ** once. (Bobble in next ch-1 sp. Ch 1. Skip next dc) 3 times. Join MC with sl st to top of first Bobble.

Rnd 7: With MC, ch 2 (does not count as st). 1 hdc in same sp as last sl st. (1 hdc in next ch-1 sp. 1 hdc in next Bobble) twice. *1 hdc in each of next 2 ch. 1 hdc in next sc. 1 hdc in each of next 2 ch. ** (1 hdc in next Bobble. 1 hdc in next ch-1 sp) 5 times. 1 hdc in next Bobble. Rep from * 5 times more, then from * to ** once. (1 hdc in next Bobble. 1 hdc in next ch-1 sp) 3 times. Join C with sl st to top of first Bobble.

Rep Rnds 2 to 7 to form pat.

Cont in pat, changing colors in same manner in the following sequence:

2 rnds with C. 1 rnd with MC.

2 rnds with D. 1 rnd with MC.
