What’s a FADIENT you ask? It’s like a fade and a gradient together, and it’s the best way to slowly blend from one yarn color into to another. The magic happens when you hold multiple strands together for a stunning, painterly effect. It is also a great way to stashbust and experiment with color. The only special tool you need is a scale accurate to the gram.

For this project I decided to stay with a set of mermaid approved pastels, but you don’t necessarily need to be so coordinated or consistent. Find any colors you like - speckled, variegated, solid, anything - I promise they’ll blend smoothly together as you knit your scarf. Once knit, it’s almost impossible to tell where the yarns change, it looks like a seamless fade because of the stitch so you can pick colors freely.
