The Merfolk Fade Shawl is worked side to side on the bias in two directions from a dividing line at the top of the shawl creating an edging. Three colors of dk weight that can be blended are all that are needed to create this colorful, fun shawl. Bright vibrant shades of multicolored yarn are shown here, but for a more subdued look, solid colors that fade from dark to light or even one or two shades (think a lace/garter split) will look amazing and will really show off the lace stitch pattern. Instructions are provided on how to blend three colors to create the faded look.
