The Moon Cloud shawl has been designed with my signature mini skeins fading advent, but I loved the pattern so much I really wanted to decline it in other variations. A 4- or 5-color fade, to use those pretty 4 or 5 skeins fades sleeping in your stash, or the simple yet stunning one color version, to let the simplicity of the pattern shine. The 24 mini skeins fade is only written for the Large size, since you will need room to slowly fade all your 24 colors. But the 4- or 5-color fade version and the one color version are both written for 2 sizes.
