Faded knitwear is still very popular, not to mention great for using up single skeins!

This loose-fitting seamless sweater, worked top down with unconventional overlong trumpet sleeves, is your canvas to play with colors.

With the stitch pattern, born out of improvising with increases, I came up when I wanted to create something more intricate, with a unique color scheme and an interesting texture that would appeal to the wild girl in every knitter, too.

Here, you can turn the general idea and technical recommendations for blending colorways into your very own color adventure in knit. Detailed fading instructions are included on page 4 of the pattern. It is up to you to decide whether you’d like to work this garment in one color, emphasizing the texture of the pretty twisted ribbing lines, or from the minimum of three to as many colors as you like from your riotous remnant basket.
