The shade is changed after the completion of these 4 rows. The 6 shades of blue are knit from dark to light; then the 6 shades of scarlet; and then the shades of beige: each set of shades is knit twice, and you will finish with the lightest beige. Knit 4 plain rows of that colour besides the 4 pattern rows.
Cast on any number of stitches divisible by 25, plus 8 more for the edges.
Row 1 – 4: k across
