I'm a newbie to the whole "fade" thing, and it was only when Tanis (from my favorite indie dyer TanisFiberArts) released kits that I succumbed. The pattern itself is a very (very) basic topdown seamless raglan - easy to knit ... and easy to fit. The fade works because the body of the piece is reverse stockinette - the purl bumps really blend the colors.
I think the dark to light fade on the collar is my favorite design detail.
Not that Holly appreciates it!
and in keeping with tradition - a favorite outtake - it was really windy!
Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend - and a Happy Easter or Passover if you're celebrating.
