Embrace Color

What colors catch your eye? If you are drawn to subtle semi-solids, bright, intense colorways or fun variegated colors there is a Red Barn Yarn colorway for you. In today’s blog, we’d like to share a few thoughts for working with those colorway variations while making the yarn work for you and your project.

ScarvesVariegated yarns are so tempting with all the colors they contain, but what works best to show off those colors? Your choice of knitting pattern and stitch pattern can make all the difference. Here we have shown a selection of scarf patterns designed by Tanis Gray; each are worked in Red Barn Yarn Worsted. From left to right: Pamplemousse, Fluvonia, Tobermory Bay, and Petipa.

Keep in mind that Red Barn Yarn yarns are uniquely hand crafted and even  skeins of yarn that are dyed in the same dye pot can end up with different saturations of color. To help avoid unwanted pooling or flashing, you may want to alternate skeins while knitting or crocheting. Of course, you do not have to do this. You may find you love the results! Ravelry and Pinterest provide great visual inspiration; we were quite taken with jdeshera’s Lace Cap and CottageYarn’s Totally Biased cowl. How have you embraced color with Red Barn Yarn in your projects? We look forward to hearing about it and seeing your results!
