I promised some ideas for colour combinations for a 3-colour Stay Awhile Shawl (see previous post), and here they are. I used Blue Sky Alpacas Skinny Cotton colours because I just love this palette. There are so many gorgeous colours, waiting to be combined! Continue reading
Shalimar have created five different stripe combinations to work with the pattern, all of them equally gorgeous. Not bought the Another Way pattern yet? They’re throwing it in for free with the kit!
I’ve been blown away by the beautiful colour combinations, yarn choices and stripe ideas that the Foolproof mystery knitalong has sparked. I’m thrilled to see such fantastic projects made when the construction was a mystery. I know there are a few days left for the MKAL to officially run, but there’s too much to share already.
I didn’t want to single out individual projects, since there are so many great ones. But what I do want to do is think about what kinds of combinations work so well for this pattern and show some great examples. So if your project isn’t here, please don’t be offended – I can only a show a few and I loved them all! This MKAL has been a real masterclass in stripe combinations, produced by you, the knitters.
