This is made from one single ball of yarn. The color changes are part of the charm of the dying process. I didn't use much of a pattern. Cast on 3 then increase regularly after the first three stitches, once before the center stitch, once after the center stitch and once before the last three stitches. This yarn is incredibly soft and beautiful! I LOVE it! Thank you to my dear cousin and knitting buddy, Dana for gifting me this ball for Christmas!
