CAST ON: Igneous Sweater by Knitting Expat

There’s a new fade in town and we’re not talking about blending colorways. In Mina Philipp’s new Igneous Sweater we watch the stitch pattern quietly fade away. Worked from the bottom up, the bird-like “v’s” of the pattern are densely populated around the waistband. But, by the time you’ve reached the yoke, the pattern has faded away. Knit this sweater 1083-2570 yards of fingering weight yarn.
