We’ve all bought lovely hand-painted yarn that looks so appealing in the skein, but then what to knit with it? It’s a yarn that needs a plain texture – lace and cables will just get lost in the colours – and yet it needs something that’s a bit fancy and not too simple. This pattern is inspired by such a yarn purchase! Koigu Painter’s Palette Premium Merino is a delight to work with, and the hardest thing about the colours? It’s choosing which one to buy.


The pattern is written for lace, fingering, sport or DK weight yarns, and it’s knit to a percentage of your total yarn in order to make the most of that premium skein
