What the Fade // Revealed!

Andrea Mowry5 Comments

Hosting my first Mystery Fade-along has been such an amazing journey and I am so grateful to everyone who participated!!

My goal for this KAL was for people to come together to knit, chat, make new friends and maybe play with color in a way that they hadn’t before! I wanted the pattern to be accessible for a wide range of knitters - beginner to advanced. I included brioche for those that already love it, or that want to push themselves to learn something new. I put together little tutorials in hopes that it would help the beginners among us to get going.

My hope is that knitters will end up with a shawl that is more of a painting - a work of art to wrap around you. A project that maybe pushes you out of your comfort zone and empowers you to play with a new technique or way of combining color, but also offers a relaxing and joyful knit to balance that out.


Seeing the finished shawls popping up on Ravelry and Instagram is second only to watching the support that knitters offered each other in the forums. In my heart I believe that knitters are some of the best people around, and I am so honored to be part of this amazing community!!
