Beautiful Projects – Strokkur

by ysoldateague September 15, 2015

We have a little bit of a yoke obsession at the moment. Ysolda’s Yokes pinterest board is full of incredible things if you’re looking for some inspiration for autumn knitting. 

We keep noticing though how many beautiful Strokkur projects there are. With just three colours its the perfect design to play around with different combinations, especially if you’re new to substituting colours in colourwork patterns. Though Felicity’s Ford’s guest blog post on Choosing Colours is a great help with this too.

We’ve chosen just a few of our favourites, but have a look at the full showcase of Strokkur projects on Ravelry – it’s so inspiring and is making me want to add another version to my wardrobe for the winter.
