Playful Stripes In Grey




I always enjoy seeing my patterns done up in different yarns and colorways.
A while back an Icelandic magazine published my Playful Stripes pattern and photographed it in this combination of colors.
I would have never thought that grey would ever work with peach or green... but it totally does! I loved this combination so much that I asked my wonderful Ravelry friend, Yaena, to knit up another Playful Stripes sample for me using these colors together.


Aren't these colors surprisingly beautiful?

If you'd like to knit up a sweater just like this you will need
Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in these following colors.

[MC] Medium Grey #9
[CC1] Baby Green #3
[CC2] Soft Peach #5
[CC3] Off White #101
[CC4] Lilac #10

The pattern will specify how many you need of each skein for the size you want to make. The pattern can be found here.

I will be using this sample for a second trunk show display.
My first trunk show of samples is booked so far in advance now that I'm having another
set of samples knit up so that I can have 2 trunk shows traveling simultaneously.
This is a fun excuse for me to have my patterns knit up in different colorways to show some variety.

I think that one of the most fun things about this Playful Stripes pattern is picking out the colors.
Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino has such a great variety of beautiful colors to choose from. The possibilities are endless!

Another color combination that recently caught my attention was found on ravelry.com.
Click here to see. When I knit this sweater again, Id like to try these colors next. So cute!

You know what else is cute?


After the photo shoot, I caught Playful Stripes cuddling with Elijah the knitted elephant.
I quick snapped a picture while they weren't looking. :)

Thank you Alana for this gorgeus pattern. I just finished the original, but with local norwegian yarn. It`s so beatiful. I hope one day to get the Playful stripes pattern for older kids too. ;)


Br,
