Pattern Crush - Sunset Highway

This week, we're changing things up a bit by introducing a new update format called 'pattern crush of the week'.  Whenever we discover a pattern that we love and know will work well with our yarns and colourways, we will dye up yarn combos or kits specifically for that design which will be made available during that week's update.  This may not occur every week, just whenever we get inspired by a particular pattern.  This week's pattern crush is Sunset Highway designed by Caitlin Hunter.

We absolutely adore this design and, for this week's update, have been working on some fun colour combinations. Here's what we've come up with:




From the top

  • Metropolis (CC1), Blush Crush, Speckled Mint and Ghost
  • Be Mine (CC1), Moonlight Drive, Cosmic Dust and Whisper
  • In the Navy (CC1), Confetti, Dandelion and Early Morning Mist
  • Night Owl (CC1), Spice Market, Phosphorescent and Love Buzz
  • Graphite (CC1), Techno, Wasabi and Neon and Grey

The yarn base selected is Uptown Sock, which is a close substitute for the original yarn used for this design; it's also perfectly suited for colourwork.  Please note that each colourway is listed separately, giving you the freedom to select your own colour combination or swap out colours for ones that appeal more to you.  The first colourway listed is our choice for the first contrast colour (CC1); however, feel free to change it as the choice is yours!  If you're just after a skein or two of Uptown Sock, that's totally fine too :).
