What to do with 500 yards of tonal yarns? What if I add another 500 yards in a neutral palette? I’m looking for the perfect pattern to show off my new Painter Palette line, and I need my knitters to weigh in!
I’ve put together a few sample combos to show off how my neutrals and palettes could be paired, and I’m looking for the perfect pattern suggestion. The winner will get a Painter Palette kit in my Killarney sock, in their choice of colours! All you have to do is leave a comment on this page letting me know what pattern you think would work (something with 3-5 colours is ideal), then share the contest on your Facebook, and blog for additional entries (be sure to let me know you did!)
Below are some of my ideas for combos, but no need to stick to what I’ve done :) Shawls and sweaters… everything is kosher as long as it’s either fingering or sport weight.
I think this pattern would be a great way to feature the beauty of such complimentary colors. It’s a simple sweater, but it would be made much prettier with these colorways. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/colorslide (BTW, I’ve shared the contest on Facebook!)
I think Tanis’ Vector scarf/wrap would be perfect for this! :) http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/vector
Is it only supposed to be one? LOL
-Nice and Knit’s “Boden” poncho, or
-Churchmouse Yarns & Teas’ “Linen Stitch Scarf” or “Easy Folded Poncho – Color Block Version”.
Ohhh definitely a Moonraker for the Sundown! http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/moonraker-2

I would chose either Clincher ( I have made 3 so far), it’s perfect for gradient yarns, the side loops would look smashing in any one of the palettes or Brush Creek Shawl ( similar to Zuzu’s Petals, made 6 of them) or Sunset Park. The patterns are easy enough for a beginner, yet satisfying for a knitter with a higher skill level
I was just looking at Melanie Berg’s The Joker and the Thief pattern (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-joker-and-the-thief) yesterday, and I think that the Charcoal/Monarch combination would be superb with it. I also think that the On the Spice Market would be another lovely design to pair with your marvelous yarn. (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/on-the-spice-market)
A Bounce blanket by TinCanKnits. You could use any of those palettes. They would all be soooo beautiful :) I don’t see Bounce just as a baby blanket – it would be a gorgeous throw for an adult, too!
I could very well imagine that you could knit a cardigan with this wonderful wool and tries to combine different colors.
for example from dark to light :-)
