Colorplay

Many knitters are intimidated by colorwork -- I know I used to be, until very recently! But as it turns out, it only takes a few tricks to get a beautiful result. I think a child-sized garment is always a good choice to venture into a new technique, too!

My Colorplay Dress is meant to be used like a coloring book: consider my own choice of colors as an example, and then just select your own yarns and color away!

When this pattern was tested, it was so incredible to see how different the same design looked depending on how muted or vivid the testers' color combinations were, or how contrasting they were, not to mention the choice of background color or yarn type. You could go from a sweet and traditional schoolgirl look, to a super-bright and modern jumper to wear with glitter sneakers or rain boots ;)

Colorplay Dress calls for sport weight yarn like Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino and is available in size 3mo to 8yo. You can purchase it here.
