Description

If you like to experiment with colors by knitting a sweater, and ordinary fading is not enough for you, it is also worth to try marling.
Marling is one of the easiest methods of colored knitting – all you have to do is connect two strands of yarn in different colors. However, if at the same time each one of the yarns is of a different fiber blend and structure, and you change every few rows to a new color, you can get a unique piece of knitwear with exclusive colors.
This is the method I used in the “Almandite” sweater.
“Almandite” is a classic and elegant open front cardigan knitted from the top to the bottom in one piece with two strands in different colors held together. To achieve smooth transitions and extraordinary colors, the strands are separated in the indicated places and replaced with new colors. An additional effect is added by an interesting textured pattern, complemented by a wide collar knitted in garter stitch.
