Subtle as a watercolor sky, Shui-mo’s ombre blanket fronts employ six shades of Loft. Two strands are held together and the colors shift one strand at a time to achieve a smooth gradient. The stockinette fronts, knit sideways from the side seam, are allowed to curl open and form a gentle A-line shape that layers gracefully. All pieces are worked flat, and slim set-in sleeves provide a tailored fit.
