Notes

This is so pretty and a perfect way to use of some Unicorn Tails that failed to get some attention for its intended project.

Flax is a PERFECT pattern in every way.

As for the fade, these are individual mini-mini skeins—I think I had about 15-20 different colors. Mostly blues and greens, but also quite a bit of browns and grays with a dash of purple. I gathered up all my spare Unicorn Tails and placed them in an order that was pleasing, going from color to color. I knit until I was a little bit more than two-thirds way through the color. Then at the BOR, added the next color and knit with each, alternating every other row until color #1 was done. Knit with color #2 until about two-thirds finished and added color #3. Continued as above.

I did the sleeves last. I took my remaining yarns and weighed each piece then divided each one in half. This way I was able to get matching (ish) sleeves.
