Introduction: What Color Is My Sweater?

About: I experience life through my finger tips and taste buds. Can't stop making new things. In my day job I manage a student workshop, and in my free time I volunteer as an EMT and for a local food rescue organizat…

Today I decided to make a sweater, but when I was finished, I couldn't tell what color it was. I asked all my friends what they thought and everyone agreed that it wasn't a very good looking sweater but nobody could give me a straight answer about the colors. Will you help me decide what colors it is?

Step 1: Gathering Supplies

All you'll need to create your color changing sweater is a sweater of one color and some lace of another color and some thread that matches the color of the lace. (Yes, there is some other fabric in that photo that I didn't end up using.)

The only tools you'll need are a sewing machine some pins and some scissors.

Note: Lace may change color, so buy thread that matches it at the time of purchase and cross your fingers that it will still match later.

Step 2: Pin

Start by pinning the lace onto the sweater in stripes. To achieve the best color changing results, I suggest varying the thickness of the lace stripes. If you only have one width of lace double up for the thick stripes and fold it over for the thin ones.

Step 3: Sew

This is where you may start to see some real color shifting. As you sew on more and more stripes the colors will change until it is completely unrecognizable as the original sweater and lace you purchased just hours ago. It is a truly remarkable scientific phenomena that very few on the internet can explain correctly (including me, I have no idea what's going on).

Step 4: Wear It!

All of a sudden, just like that, you're finished. You have created a piece of fashion that will truly wow your friends. It is best viewed with poor lighting and under the lens of a terrible smartphone camera.

If you've done all the steps correctly you should see some remarkable color changing effects.
