Alada is a crescent shape shawl knitted from the top down (from the back neck towards the hem). At both ends of the wingspan, one at a time, two stylized wings are knitted.
The fade between two colors happens alternating colors at every two rows; the fading between three colors occurs working 1 row in each color throughout.
When changing colors, carry the yarns along the edge as much as possible, avoiding too much weave in ends! Bring the new color of yarn under the just worked color.
