Transition information for this pattern:
Another of the Classic Children’s Book Mystery KAL’s
This design is designed to use any of the Unique Sheep Gradience colourways, but can be knitted using any lace weight yarn of approx. 1200yds

The transition you use is an aesthetic choice on your part. If you go with a 4 part transition then your shawl will be asymmetrical in color and the changes from skein to skein will be wider. If you go with the 7 part transition you will have a symmetrically colored shawl, but you will have 6 transitions within the shawl instead of 3.
The best way to do your transitions symetrically is by weighing the yarn and dividing the skeins into two equal balls – this way you can be sure that you will have enough yarn to make each half of the stole transition equally.
If you are going to do 1-2-3-4 you’ll do your first transition at 11.75” (and this is measuring from the pickup). You won’t get to this point until Chart 3. Then from skein 2 -3 at 29.5 inches then finally from 3 to 4 at 46.25 If you are doing 1-2-3-4-3-2-1 you will do the first transition at 3”, which should be after the 1st repeat of the Mohune Y chart. Then from skein 2 -3 at 12 inches then finally from 3 to 4 at 21”, 4 to 3 at 38”, 3 to 2 at 47” and finally 2 to 1 at 59” - all these measurements are unblocked.
