Knits with Friends: Spring Fade Along

Knits with Friends- Spring Fade Along at Stash

Spring is in bloom, and new life is emerging each day. We think this makes Spring the perfect time to start an all new project!

Join as we indulge in our need for Spring color with a Knits with Friends Spring Fade Along!

The Fade Along begins March 24th and runs through May 5th.

We’ve long-admired designer Andrea Mowry’s innovative color fade technique and think it’s the perfect way to play with color. There’s so many ways to combine color in these projects: stay in one color palette and fade from light to dark. Choose two complimentary colors for each end of a shawl, then have fun blending them with speckled and variegated yarns.

Listen to our interview with Andrea on The Stash Podcast

We’ve put together a bundle of Andrea’s Fade patterns for you to consider here, or you can scroll through the pics below to get inspired. Click the photo and it will take you right to the pattern page on Ravelry!
