Slipstravaganza MKAL - Friday 25th September

September 23, 2020

This week, we've had a ball dyeing up yarn for the Westknits Slipstravaganza MKAL (begins on Oct 9).  To help you plan your colour combinations, we have posted below all of this week's colourways, as well as lots of suggested combinations.  You will need need two skeins in the main colour and three contrasting colours.  If you haven't already, go and purchase the pattern from Ravelry.  It provides lots of helpful information about choosing colours for the MKAL.  The idea is to choose a main colourway that contrasts well with all three of the other colours.  This is because the contrast colours will be framed by the main colour, so they must pop!

All yarns will be sold separately, which allows you the freedom to choose your own combination.  The combinations below are suggestions only: there are endless possibilities, so feel free to swap colours around as you please.  If you need any help, just contact us.

Our yarn base is Everyday Sock and, without further ado, here are this week's colours and suggested combinations.  Hope you enjoy!
