CAL Check-In: Faux Fade Wrap – Progress Report
Janine Myska and her crochet Faux Fade Wrap

Hi Crochet-Alongers! How are you progressing on your Faux Fade Wrap, our current WeCrochet CAL? If you’d like to join (or just get caught up on all the CAL details), go here to find the Faux Fade Wrap Crochet Along information.

By now, you should have already chosen your fade colors, made a swatch, and have made some progress on your shawl. Let’s check in on a few people to see how they are doing.

Zoey’s Faux Fade Shawl Progress

If you don’t remember from our last check-in post, Zoey is our digital graphic designer (responsible for all our pretty downloadable calendar wallpapers, WeCrochet emails, and other goodies), and she’s a beginner crocheter who decided to jump in and join the Faux Fade Shawl CAL, with a Freddy Kreuger-inspired yarn color palette.

So how is Zoey doing on her shawl now? She’s making great progress. “I literally never thought I was going to make it past row 1’s turn,” she said. But guess what, she’s made it to her second color already!

Notice that Zoey is using a locking stitch marker to keep track of which side of the shawl needs the increase stitches. She is also counting her rows with a Kacha Kacha Crochet Counter, which helps her keep track without stress.

Producer Sarah’s Progress

Producer Sarah holds up her finished Faux Fade Shawl, which is a gradient that goes from dark brown to tan to blue to green to yellow to pink to purple.

And BAM! Producer Sarah finished her wrap last weekend, and WOW does it look amazing! All those random single balls of Palette she had really came together to create a beautiful final product. “I’m kinda proud,” she admitted.
