What the Fade?!: Cake Baby
Excited for another “Fade” knitting project from Andrea Mowry!? SweetGeorgia has designed a collection of colour palettes for DreaReneeKnits “What the Fade” mystery knit-along that begins on August 31.
Inspired by our favourite fictional cafés and restaurants, we’ve created five different colour sets and they include SIX skeins of Tough Love Sock in a colour palette that will fade beautifully from one hue to the next. A few of the sets include our splashy dyed skeins and a few sets are all semi-solids. These sets are priced at just $165 CAD (down from the $180 CAD original price). That works out to be about $125 USD for each set.
You’ll need SIX full-skeins of fingering weight yarn. The total approximate yardage is approximately 2000 yards (1830 m) so it is a BIG shawl and there will be lots of knitting! Here are a few tips from Andrea for choosing colours:
- Six different colours to create a cohesive fade.
- Look for nuances that can be seen from one colour to the next.
- Our Tough Love Sock skeins are 425 yards per skein of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon fingering weight. As Andrea notes, your working gauge should be 26 sts and 60 rows for garter stitch and 26 sts and 30 rows for brioche stitch.
- All patterns are sold separately and not included with purchase of yarn.
