Sun and Moon Fade Kits

  • Product Info

    Pattern Details:

    The "Sun and Moon Fade" by Jamie Hoffman (@knitosophy) is designed for three colors that fade out from the center, much like the halo effect around the sun and moon. Its unique construction pattern begins in the round, where increases expand the circle to size. The circle is then squared off using German Short rows, and the side, bottom and top panels are worked back and forth from there. The pattern is worked in two pieces, with minimal seaming located at the shoulders and sides only. The front and back are identical other than some added shaping for the shoulders to the back piece. Choose from short, three-quarter or long sleeves.

    Kits are dyed-to-order and will ship within 2-3 weeks.
