Oranges, reds, and yellows often steal the show in autumn but like a fickle friend they disappear as quickly as they arrive. Celebrate the subtle beauty of the gradient of neutrals and browns that appear as the leaves make the journey to earth below with this sweater. The perfect garment for a late autumn walk, crunching through the leaves.

This design can be worked two different ways, with a single strand of aran weight yarn in a single colourway or with two strands of fingering weight held double to achieve a gradient. It is suggested that you purchase this pattern and read entirely before purchasing yarn.

Fingering Weight - Two Strands
To achieve the gradient effect shown on the model, you will knit with two strands of yarn at all times.

Aran Weight - One Strand
This will create a sweater that is a single colour throughout, without any color changing effect.
