All of the exact yardages I used for each section are listed with the yarn descriptions.

The lace sections after the stitches stoped increasing I definitely got off stitches here and there. I just used her general idea for the lace for those last 3 lace sections. I think overall it will be just fine.

Icelandic bind off. First time using it and seriously it’s going to be my go to for garter shawls!!!! What an AMAZING stretchy bind off!!

This project seriously stretched me creatively. I combined lots of different yarn bases, different dyers, colors that I wouldn’t normally put together, and I’m SUPER pleased with how it turned out. I think in the end it looks like one cohesive gradient, which makes me very happy. I tried to stay true to the “fade” inspired by the designer, and I believe that I was able to achieve it.
