I am so happy to announce we are now ready to offer the second installment of Color Affection – a Plucky Knitter yarn collaboration with the talented and extremely clever Veera Välimäki (the designer behind such lovely patterns as the Honey Cardigan, Golden Wheat, Water & Stone and the wildly popular Stripe Study).
Color Affection combines garter stitch, the clever use of short rows and unexpected color combiniations, which all adds up to more stripes to love and, quite simply, a match made in project heaven!
Just a few of the many color kits available
The Color Affection kit will be available in twenty-three (yes, 23!!) different color combinations (truly something for everyone) and will be available for sale in the brand new Plucky shop on Saturday, December 31st at Noon Eastern.
Kits are priced at $89 each and include:
–3 skeins of The Plucky Knitter Primo Fingering (385yds per skein)
-the Color Affection pattern
You will need needles: US 6 (US 2.5) [4 mm (3 mm)] circular needle, at least 80 cm/32” long. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
