Pattern Crush - So Faded by Andrea Mowry

Our pattern crush this week is the fabulous So Faded sweater by Andrea Mowry.  We've had many requests for colour combinations for this pattern, and have been secretly putting together six faded combinations dyed onto our popular Top Draw Sock. Here they are:



From the top

  • Crema, Ghost, Confetti, Paintbox, Metropolis
  • Sand, Woolshed, Pollen, Namaste and Prairie
  • Glee, Techno, Neon and Grey, Speckled Mint and Graphite
  • Misty Sea, Whisper, Eventide, Raven and Night Owl
  • Barley, Spellbound, Peace, Lily Pond and Cafe Bleu
  • Sherbet Fizz, Blush Crush, Spice Market, Head Over Heels and Terracotta Sun

Please note: each colourway is listed separately, giving you the freedom to select your own colour combination or swap out colours for ones that appeal more.  You might like to use all five faded colourways or select 3; the choice is yours.  Also, if you're just after a skein or two (or more!) of Top Draw Sock for something else, that's totally fine too :). 


30 (34, 38, 42) [46, 50, 54]"/ 76.5 (86.5, 96.5, 107)[117, 127, 137.5] cm Bust

There are two versions of So Faded: the Cropped Version with 3/4 sleeves, and the Classic Version which has a full-length body and sleeves.  Yarn requirements for both versions are listed below. 

Top Draw Sock 437 yards / 400 meters in 95g

Cropped Version with Elbow-length Sleeves: 2 (3, 3, 3) [4, 4, 4] skeins
Classic Version with Full-length Sleeves: 3 (3, 4, 4) [5, 5, 5] skeins

The So Faded pattern by Andrea Mowry can be purchased separately over on Ravelry.

If you're more interested in knitting the Find Your Fade shawl, also by Andrea Mowry, these colour combinations would work equally well for that too as well as the new MKAL What The Fade?!

All the yarns will be in the shop Friday 11th August at 9am AEST!  We hope you enjoy our pattern crush of the week and look forward to seeing all of your projects.

Have a fabulous weekend!
