Fruit Cup Fade is beginner friendly - and I've added tips throughout.
Fruit Cup Fade is a corner to corner moss stitch blanket, with the only rule, that I work as much as I can in the given time frame, but not more than one ball of each colour. There will be a minimum of seven parts to the blanket - to coincide with the rainbow challenge. My blanket will be a single bed size.
My orange is - #595-11 Mango Sprinkles
Previously used yarn #595-10 Raspberry Sprinkles. The reserved yarn will be used in this section.
Also needed: 5 mm crochet hook. Written in US terms.
Pattern repeat: Ch 3, (sc, ch 1) in each ch-1 sp across, (sc, ch 1 sc) in ch-3 sp, turn.
(remember: the 1st sc of each row is in the chain space between the increase stitches, make sure you don't miss it.)
Join Mango yarn by undoing previous stitch by one step, and replace with mango yarn. When changing colours, do so in the last step of the prior stitch. Do not cut yarn between colour changes until instructed.
Rows 81-82: Work two rows of pattern in Mango. (83 sc)
Rows 83 -86: Work four rows of pattern in Raspberry. (87 sc)
Rows 87- 88: Work two rows in Mango. (89 sc)
Rows 89 -90: Work two rows in Raspberry. (91 sc)
Rows 91 -94: Work four rows in Mango. Cut yarn, leaving a tail. (95 sc)
Row 95: Work one row in Raspberry Cut yarn, leaving a tail. We are now finished with the Raspberry yarn.(96 sc)
Rows 96- 125: Join Mango yarn, work 30 rows. (126 sc)
Do do fasten off, reserve Mango yarn for next section, however do weave in any loose ends that are not the working yarn.
You are of course, free to alter the fade rows depending on the amount of Raspberry yarn you have reserved.
*EDIT* A few people have said they fell short with their mango yarn. If this is the case, omit a few rows from the 30 final mango. You can add them back in during the blue section, which is a little thinner!
This pattern suits individual modifications!
The yellow section will be posted next month - we continue the pattern repeat, but begin decreasing on one side to make a rectangle!
