About the pattern:
From the designer: This sweater sums up my ideal raglan pullover: worked from the top down, completely seamless, and just a little bit of texture to make it fit into a more modern wardrobe! Adjust the length of the sleeves and the body easily to fit your personal style!
The So-Faded sweater is an ideal beginner sweater project – easy to knit, seamless, and a top-down construction that allows the knitter to try-on the sweater as they go for a perfect fit. The pattern comes in a large range of sizes, from 30″ to 58″ bust. There is also a children’s pattern, if you prefer to knit for a smaller human. The sweater is knit in fingering weight yarn, which makes for a light sweater perfect for spring/summer evenings. The fading effect is created by blending hand-dyed speckled or variegated yarns. It is easy to customize to use as many colors of yarns as you like. Choose from a cropped length or full-length body, and 3/4 or full-length sleeves.
