You might have deduced by now that we are quite enamored with gradients, as evidenced by our growing collection of Party of Five sets. Which is why we are thrilled with the news of Carol Feller’s new book, Knitting With Rainbows!
Carol helps us move past that fear of opening the most beautiful gradient set to cast-on an equally beautiful piece. Throughout the eleven patterns in the book, she takes us through techniques and stitches that enable us to use these fascinating kits to the best of their ability. One of those patterns uses our Party of Five sets, Hanami. Sunday’s Well is a gorgeous slouch hat featuring a Herringbone pattern and gentle waves of colour.
