This multi-coloured faded wrap is made from a simple 2-row repeat, and uses just single crochets! The only technique you need to know is is how to work the colour changes, but I promise – once you see how easy it is to do one row, it’s a breeze. I even included a link to a video to show you exactly how it’s done!

Typical “fades” normally work the colour changes a bit differently than I have done in this pattern. Usually, an old colour will transition to a new colour over many rows, fading slowly from old colour to new.

Here, what I’ve done is work each colour-change section by working simply alternating A, B, A, B, A, B, etc, rather than A, A, A, A, B, A, A, A, B, B, A, A, B, A, B, B, A, B, B, B, A, B, B, B, B or something like that which would gradually fade the colours from old to new. This is why I named it the “Faux Fade Wrap”.

This is much simpler way to achieve a unique colour transition (and it makes it a really easy pattern to work while you’re watching TV and you don’t have to pay that close of attention to your counting)! While only 5 colours are used, it gives the appearance of 9 thanks to the “faded” sections.
