I am so thrilled to announce the first ever Drea Renee Knits Mystery Knit FADE Along!! If you are familiar with Andrea Mowry's work, you know all about her beautiful shawls and sweaters using gorgeous speckled yarns. We would like to offer you several different color choices in Baah Yarn Spec-Tacular and Dipped & Dappled lines. We have thrown a bit of Malabrigo Sock into the mix just because the colors blend so beautifully! Since none of us know What the Fade KAL will make, the excitement unravels as our needles knit this mystery piece!
The first clue will drop on August 31st, so grab your pattern today to check out the welcome video and then head over to the Drea Renee Knits Ravelry group to post pictures of your fade!! Designer recommends 6 colors of 400 yds each for the kit.
