Playing With Yarn

KnitPicks Palette Yarn

Where to buy: KnitPicks Palette*

When you have a winner, you have a winner. I’ve been collecting Palette for a couple years now, ordering when a certain color combo grabs my fancy, and adding the 50g candies to my special Palette Tupperware bin. I just love this yarn.

It comes in 150 colors! And it’s a dainty fingering weight with a recommended hook size of teensy, but I use an F hook and sometimes even a G! The yarn has a fuzziness since it’s wool, so you can get away with going up in hook size and not worry about losing stitch structure.

Peep some of my Palette lounging in a candid action shot. Honestly you can’t go wrong with your color combo here. And certain shades are delightfully heathered, which I truly love for the added depth it gives the finished piece.

Here is some of my Palette stash on the second row down, hanging out with a group of coral and sea junkies.

And another pretty group of sweets – my kiddoes at the park! ­čśŹ Swooooon!

Okay, so what can you do with this KnitPicks* yarn? Need some inspiration??

I have some!
Imagine making a blanket like this, using granny squares… (Image of lovely Criss Cross blanket from the beautiful ombr├ę fabric Blog post┬á)

Well there are definitely enough shades and the price can’t be beat, so ordering a ton of colors is completely doable to achieve this amazing ombr├ę effect.

Then there’s something a little more geometric and clean.
