INSTRUCTIONS:

Notes:

  • Before working with Caron® x Pantone™ multi-shade yarn braid, separate each color link and wind into five separate balls.
  • Each color link will be referenced by its Pantone color # (see label).
  • Designate each different shade of the five separate yarn balls 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 gauge must be matched to ensure successful results.
  • When working from chart and joining new color, work to last two loops on hook. Draw new color through last two loops, then proceed in new color. 
  • Carry color when not in use loosely across top of previous rnd and work sts around it to avoid stranding.
