Written without seaming, this sweater starts with a center back lace panel and is worked out to the edge, where front and back are joined using the three-needle bind-off technique. The second side is then worked as for the first side. The gradient begins with the lightest color in the center and moves through the set of colors using linen stitch and garter + stockinette stitch striping to fade beautifully through the range to the darkest color. Because there are no seams, linen stitch is used to give the fabric and sweater overall structure.
