New Chroma Colors!

Chroma, our multicolor yarn, available in both fingering and worsted weights, is a perennial customer and staff favorite. We love the old favorites like Groovy, Sugar Cookie, and Sandpiper.  Now, we have eight more colorways for you to try!


Whether you love the teal blues in “Surf’s Up” or the the oranges and yellows in “Get Your Neon”, Chroma yarn is sure to keep your knitting interesting. Here at Knit Picks HQ, the colorway “Manzanita” has been a big hit. Check out two staff projects in this gorgeous blue, gray, and gold colorway!

Heidi crocheted an Annie Baby Blanket (Ravelry link) using 5 balls of Chroma Natural and 2.5 balls of Manzanita, both in worsted weight . The finished blanket is 40 inches wide by 44 inches tall, and so very gorgeous, don’t you think?

Emily made up her own pattern for this cowl using the Corn on the Cob stitch from Barbara E. Walker’s A Treasury of Knitting Patterns and 1 ball each of Chroma Worsted in Manzanita and Cream, on size 8 needles. It seems like the perfect stitch for Chroma, right? Emily reports that the cowl is warm and squishy, and matches coats she owns for many seasons.

And lucky for you, Emily was kind enough to write up the pattern for her lovely cowl and you can get it as a free download here: Enchanted Valley Cowl.

My dream is to complete a Jessica Cardigan (Ravelry link) with Get Your Neon  Chroma in Fingering Weight, and maybe Bare Stroll Sport.  It’s in my queue, so it’s bound to happen sometime! Whether you’re new to Chroma or a long-time fan, with eight new colorways, there’s now even more to love!
