Work the 6 colour gradient set as follows:
6 Colour gradient set: to use for the 24 colours, so in terms of colour numbering:
Darkest colour is GC1 - lightest colour is GC6,
(the G is for gradient to distinguish between the pattern numbering)
- GC1 for C1, C2, C3 then for C24 (and will use for first row)
- GC2 for C4, C5, C6 then for C23
- GC3 for C7, C8, C9 then for C22
- GC4 for C10, C11, C12 then for C21
- GC5 for C13. C14, C15 then for C20
- GC6 for C16, C17, C18 then for C19
Each gradient colour will be worked for 3 colour changes up to C17, then for the final 6 colour changes they will be worked once each to fade back from light to dark.
