The Facts: So here’s the 101 on what I am showing you. One thing I suggest if you don’t want a blunt color change is to blend your yarns before we start the lace section. If you don’t care then this post is not helpful.
I carried Color A and Color B up for about 8 rows so that I could see what’s possible. On Row 7, I intentionally pulled on Color B until I lined up the light with the light to see what happens. The end result was a subtle pooling of colors in the lighter sections and then a rock and roll burst of deep teal in the cooler blues.
NOTE: I straight knit. Once we start our pattern the rules change because we will have unexpected transitions. The goal is to have a playful, yet edgy and timeless piece. Oh, and to have fun! Fun is definitely a must. Lace will eat up more yarn and shorten the distances between the light, middle and dark tones.

Project Peace Update: Two skeins, Color A and B, and they are shown here together so you can see the ebb and flow of the colors. My mind was set on clear waters where you can see the vivid greens of the sea grasses. Look ahead and the colors change to darker hues as the waters run deeper. I have named this “Clarity” because for there to be Peace we must have clarity.
Details on Yarn: Two skeins: Color A is 450 yards and Color B is 200 yards. Total 650 yards to complete larger size of the Project Peace knit-along. Merino 6/3, Sport weight, US 4-9 needle, 6/3, high twist. Custom dyed.
