Ysolda has handpicked some special combinations of Finull PT2 for you to explore. Sample, swatch or create a special accessory with these colour exploration kits.
The Bramble colourway was inspired by the Bramble Mittens, featured in the latest Amirisu Magazine. Designed by Dianna Walla, these colourwork mittens offer a new colour palette we just had to try in Finull! We chose to combine C1 and C2 for a vibrant single main colour. The pack provides enough yarn to make the mittens in the same colours whilst leaving enough for another project or perhaps to modify these to full mittens.
Try dividing the six yarns into two groups, eg. warm and cool, and, starting with the darkest of one and the lightest of the other, use one yarn from each group at a time. Or use the yarns to explore contrast, by knitting the same stitch pattern in low and high contrast combinations. Or, perhaps, try playing with the ways in which you can create a fade effect based on the tonal value of colours, even when the hues are quite different.
How do the individual colours change depending on which colour you combine them with? Most of the colours included are heathered, and, when you look closely, you'll notice that they contain small flecks of unexpected colours: how you combine them will draw out different hues, often in quite surprising ways. Spending time playing with them will dramatically improve your ability to put together your own colour combinations for fair isle and stranded colourwork knitting, and build your confidence with colour. When was the last time you played?
