Did you know when Red Barn Yarn began, only 24 colors were offered? Now, we have over 60 different colorways, not including the one-of-a-kind “Uniquities” that are available at events and workshops. The colors are inspired by nature and the world around us. Some names will make you chuckle, others may help you dream; they will definitely encourage you to create.
Variegated yarns, and many of our Uniquities, are so pleasing because they combine a number of different colors within one skein. There are many simple stitch patterns that result in high impact garments and accessories because they allow the colors of the yarn to really take center stage, for example the chevron pattern combined with our variegated yarn shown above. Below is one of the Uniquities knit in a simple eyelet lace scarf.
Combining a tonal solid with a variegated colorway is another way in which to make the most of our fabulous colorways. Chevrons Galore by Sarah Bradbury is the pattern shown here and is knit in Raw Silk & Wool (Coral Bells) combined with Uniquities. This is a great pattern as you just knit until the yarn runs out!
How do you “Paint with Passion” with our yarns? Do you like to mix and match colors or do you prefer more tonal and solid colored projects? We encourage you to share your projects with us in our Ravelry group, on our Facebook page or even tag us in a Tweet!
