Colour Melt


This week, we are delighted to be sharing our newest design with you. The Colour Melt Shawl is a simple, garter-stitch triangular shawl that lets you play with colour!  By alternating between one and then two yarns, which are held together at the same time, a colour-melt effect occurs.  It's fascinating to see what colour effects you get!  



The shawl is lovely and big which is perfect for wrapping yourself up in!  There is also a simple lace border with picot bind off that adds a nice feminine touch.

The Colour Melt shawl requires three full skeins of Top Draw Sock; the more contrast the better!  All you need to do is select three of your favourite contrasting yarns and watch what happens when they melt together.  We have of course put a few colour combinations together that we think would look fabulous:



From top left;
  • Make Hay While the Sun Shines, Wasabi and China Town (used for sample design)
  • Techno, Pollen and Graphite
  • Ghost, Eventide and Night Owl
  • Myrtle Creek, Industrial Age and Time Is On My Side

These are available in Friday's update!  Please note, these yarns are all sold separately and not as kits.  We thought this would be better, so you can pick and choose your own favourite combinations!  The Colour Melt Shawl pattern is also available now over on Ravelry!
Apart from all the lovely semi-solid, speckled and variegated colours of Top Draw Sock, we will also have a few Crazy Colour skeins!  These beauties are perfect for socks as they knit up in fun micro stripes!  And if that's not enough, we will also have a wonderful selection of Mini skeins, all of which will be available in the shop  Friday 24th Feb at 9am AEDT.

Have a wonderful week!
