There is a lot to love about knitting, but color tops our list. Color makes the process of knitting exciting (if you don’t believe me, try knitting with a skein of self-striping yarn!) and lets you be the captain of your wardrobe ship. You can express yourself with a bright pair of socks. You can churn out handknits in your favorite, statement color. Or you can experiment with bold accessory pieces that challenge a neutral wardrobe. Of course, you can choose a self-striping yarn, variegated, or speckled colorway to achieve your color, but don’t discount solid colorways. You can create your own color palette, use one bright color on its own, or even hold two strands together to create a one-of-a-kind marled look. To help you embrace color, we’ve chosen four patterns that inspire you to get creative and even a bit wild with your color choices!
