Add Color to your Knitting
There are many ways to add color to our knitting. It can be as simple as color blocking (see the Wynter Cowl in last week's Web-Letter) or adding stripes throughout like I did for the Farmhouse Afghan. And still, we can take it one step further and work with two – or more – colors at a time.
If the zig and zag of the stripes in the Farmhouse Afghan piques your interest, consider the Abbey pullover (top left). Knit in Inca Alpaca, its harmonious colors zig zag around the yoke in a simple Fair Isle pattern with two colors at a time. Similarly, Lady of Grace (top center) has a Fair Isle yoke worked in five colors of Ava.
If working with one color at a time is more to your liking, consider Saint Stephen (hat, lower left). This colorful hat has four-round stripes of Fresco. If the featured yarn this in week's issue appeals to you, then consider Faith (bottom center). Mix and match colors of Blackthorn and Wynter for a multitude of colorful possibilities.
Once you develop a rhythm working with two colors, it can be hard to stop! In no time you'll have a stack of colorful projects just like we did for the Cathedral book. Ready to start your stack? Look for Cathedral at your LYS or purchase the Cathedral eBook and individual patterns instantly online.
