As the weather gets cozier our stashes seem to get more colorful. This week we’re dipping into the wide world of multi colored knitting. From epic Fair Isle to simply soothing marled effects, we’re sharing all our knitting know-how in this episode!
First up, Stacey and Lee discuss some popular techniques for getting maximum color in every square inch. Stay tuned to learn the similarities and differences between techniques like Fair Isle, Mosaic, Intarsia, and marls.
Next, Sara joins Hannah from our sister company WeCrochet to tackle some common considerations when choosing colors. They cover some color theory basics that work for every project and also share our favorite ways of choosing specific Knit Picks and WeCrochet brand colors from our websites when you can’t just order them ALL to see in person!
Also, we wanted to let everyone know that our Twelve Weeks of Gifting series of free patterns is happening right now on both KnitPicks.com and Crochet.com! Each week we’re releasing a free pattern to get you excited about holiday knitting. The closer to the end of the year we get, the easier the patterns get, perfect for last minute gifting for anyone left on your list. Or! Simply treat yourself. Check out the Twelve weeks of gifting or sign up for our emails to be the first to know when there’s a new release.
