Ok, so I just really love this one. 🥰
I mean- check out that awesome Spincycle fade! 🤩
Nadine is the latest design in This.Bird.Knits' ongoing Twin Peaks collection, and features Sugarplum Circus BFL DK along with Spincycle's Dream State.
I used the Sugarplum Circus Espresso colorway for my MC, and Spincycle End of Summer & Devilish Grin for my CC's.
I hadn't originally planned on fading my End of Summer skeins into anything else, but when I saw how that first skein faded in and out of that cool lemon/lime part and back into orange, I wanted to try to do something epic!
So I got some orange-leaning skeins of Devilish Grin and went to work. 😅
The body was actually pretty easy to fade, but the sleeves took a bit of knitting and re-knitting to get them just right.
As far as mods go- I pretty much followed the pattern, aside from leaving out the very last motif on the body to shorten it a bit, and I did not do the optional waist-cinching decreases.
I also lengthened the sleeves a bit by adding a couple more colorwork motifs there.
All in all, I can honestly say that weaving in all of those ends was totally worth it, because I love my sweater! ☺️
