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!!
So lovely, well done you!
Very pretty! Love your colors.
It’s beautiful! Hope you get to wear it soon.
Looks so inviting. Nice!
That turned out beautiful! It looks so squishy and warm, and the colors are lovely 🙂
That turned out so amazing
