Pattern - Trilogy, by This.Bird.Knits, ready to ship

Trilogy by Annie Haas of This.bird.knits

From the designer: "For this sweater I wanted a cozy, quick knit that could be an everyday sweater. I loved the first version I knit SO MUCH that I decided to knit another, and another…..the options of holding different yarn weights either single, double or triple provide a unique opportunity to play around with yarns of different weights and colors!"

Fingering Weight Held Triple
Approximately 2100 (2400, 2700, 3000) (3240, 3540, 3780) 4320 yards
This version is a GREAT Stash Buster, so if you have leftover balls you can approximate by weight: 535 (610, 685, 760) (820, 895, 950) 1090 grams

A note on Marling the colors and fading…..
This was my first time doing it this way, but I found that even though you’re only knitting with 3 strands at once, I liked the way the colors blended best when I had 4 or even 5 balls of yarn attached to the sweater, and each round I would swap out a strand, gradually incorporating the next color I wanted to blend to….
