My first cast on for 2018 will be my Comfort Fade Cardi by Andrea Mowry. This pattern uses DK weight yarn knit in reverse stockinette stitch to create a squishy, warm cardigan perfect for snuggling up with. Using Andrea's fade technique four colors of yarn are blended together to create a painterly technique that makes this garment particularly eye catching.
I've chosen to knit my cardigan with a pop of berry pink for the first color and fade into variegated and speckled shades of grey.
My first color is called My New Party Dress
I love all shades of berry, burgundy, and pink, so I know I'll be happy with this bright pop of color in my wardrobe. But I don't want my whole cardigan to be bright, so I'm quickly fading into a variegated, but still colorful grey with Agate Beach.
Followed up by a speckled charcoal grey called Storm Dancer, and finally ending with Writing's On The wall or Thundercloud. I haven't completely made up my mind, but I'll know when I get there.
The whole line up looks pretty great together and I'm anxious to get started.
