Before beginning this project I wound all the mini skeins into a single ball by joining them via magic knot.

I used ALL of the yarn so that I could get to the last color in this gradient. If your gauge doesn’t match mine or your yardage varies, your shawl may differ. The pattern is very adaptable. Once you get to the final garter section, you can simply keep knitting until you run out of yarn.
