FO Friday: Free Your Fade

I made it you guys! My Free Your Fade is done and I’M IN LOVE!! I just wish it was still cold enough to wear it this week. 

Pattern: Free Your Fade by Andrea Mowry

Yarn: Anzula Ava in Raspberry, Leon Alexander Yarns Duke DK in Oh La La and One Twisted Tree Lavish in Chaotic Nuetral.

Needles: US 7

Mods: Omitted the picot bind of in favor of a suspended bind off instead.

This thing is sooooo squishy and lovely. The DK (and sport) yarn just give this a nice heft that I haven’t felt with my fingering weight shawls. It is also MASSIVE. I used approximately 260 grams of yarn or 673 yards of yarn. And I used the middle variagated skein down to the last little nub!

My fade isn’t super duper subtle as it would be with a more graduated set of colors. But I love it and pretty proud of myself for my first fade! I do wish my larger yarn overs were a little neater. But I was too far in when I noticed and I decided that consistent yarn overs made my brain happier than neat ones would.

Oh my gosh…I need to wear this soon! Happy Knitting!!
