I used 3 colors for my shawl. I used the first color in the first 3 repeats of rows 2 and 3. Then I used the 2nd color for the first repeat of rows 14 and 15. I then used the 2nd color for the next repeat, alternating the 2nd and 3rd colors when repeating rows 14 and 15. Then I used the 3rd color for the last repeat of rows 2 and 3.
