This design is all about introducing colour-work that is both fun and achievable, making this bold speckled colour pattern surprisingly easy. The tones are playful and interesting, contrasting and complimenting.
Sumptuous, by The Woven, was developed with colour-play in mind. Fun little 25grm balls of bright accents allow you to stock up on colourways and create your own story. The fiber is a wonderful blend of NZ Polwarth Wool (the merino’s closest cousin) and Alpaca. This incredible yarn is soft, full and very low irritant – making it perfect for your head. Those with sensitive skin can rejoice in the soft squishy warm comfort.
This pattern is for advanced beginners up, those comfortable knitting in the round, changing colours, knit and purl stitches, using some decreases at the top for shaping. If you’ve never tried colour-work – here’s your chance!
Just for fun, I added a possum fur pompom, how lush….
1 x ball of Sumptuous Natural Beaucoup 75grm
4 x balls of Sumptuous Piccolos 25grms (Zest, Petrol, Aquamarine and Blush)
4.5 mm Knit Pro circular needles on 60 cm
Add a pom pom too!
