This sweater is an ideal raglan pullover from the famed DreaReneeKnits designer, Andrea Mowry. The Sweater is worked from the top down, is completely seamless, and has just a little bit of texture to make it fit into a more modern wardrobe. The sweater comes in 2 versions so simply adjust the length of the sleeves and the body to fit your personal style! This kit is for the full length version which has long sleeves and a full length torso that extends below the hip bone. There are 5 colors included in the Long Sleeve Version of So Faded. Click for Cropped Version with elbow length sleeves and cropped length. Also available in Pint-Sized Version for children.
Kit includes pattern (both the cropped version and full length version are included) and selected yarn. Kits with similar yarn requirements are combined for purchasing purposes only.

Because this pattern is so vibrant, Yarn Loop has selected the perfect color combinations over several different brands (Malabrigo, O-Wool, & Baah Yarn) to create the best fades. Please rest assured that all are washable Merino Wool of the correct weight. Please wash all of your skeins prior to starting your project to prevent color bleeding in the finished garment.
