Y’member the beautiful shawl Virginia shared the other day?
And y’member the two-tone purple and turquoise Twins I dyed up this weekend? I showed them hanging on the rack on Saturday; they are the two on the far right of this image:
So this evening I balled those two skeins,
and I’m setting aside the crochet shawl (which is taking for-EV-errrrr), and starting my own version of the square, and hoping that the math for a two-tone fade will be similar to the apricot fade that Virginia did. If I am not mistaken, the place where the points form is the row where the circumference of the row is equal to the circumference of the skein. Before that point, the color changes occur less frequently than the circumference, and after that the color changes occur less frequently. I’m probably not explaining that correctly, but if my suspicions prove true I should be able to explain WHY it works as it does.
This is the starting point for this new experiment. It is on Knitterman’s Fingering, and I plan to use a size 5 needle. If you like this idea, why not hop over and select your own two-tone combination on the Custom-Dye page? Just select “Custom” option and tell me the two colors you’d like me to use for a two-tone double-fade.
