Pattern Notes

This pattern works with a yarn that fades from one color into the next. So there will be Color A, then Color A into B, then Color B, then Color B into C and so on.
The pattern starts with a section of garter stitch through all of Color A, then when the color starts to change the row is finished and a section of seed stitch is worked through Color A into B, Color B, and Color B into C, as soon as the color change is completed, the row is finished and the pattern goes back to garter stitch for all of Color C.
This is repeated throughout so the garter sections are one solid color and the seed stitch sections are a color change, a solid color, and a color change.
