Because I just can’t say no . . . I had to try out every one of YOTH’s new fresh palette colors, because they’re just so damn gorgeous! What to do with 12 colors of blues and greens? I think that tin can knits’ vivid blanket pattern is the perfect way to show off each of the colors.
I added one extra round of outer garter stitch (six instead of five) and calculated that I can get three blocks from each 231-yard skein of Big Sister DK weight yarn, knit on US 7s, with enough left over so as to not get nervous. That will mean 36 blocks in all . . . I haven’t figured out yet how to lay them out. By color family? In random order? I’ll have to get them all done and then play around with different layouts before I decide.
Each of these colors is so beautiful, it’s hard to choose a favorite – I’m finished with the blues, and moving on to the greens. I love all of the blues, but I have to say that the Concord Grape is particularly stunning. And the names . . . love them! Why is it so much more fun to knit with yarns that have wonderful names?Pin It
