Color combinations - Pieceful Cardigan

Shares

For the first mix&knit along with Tanja Steinbach, we wanted the emphasis to be on personal inspiration and creativity as well as on the joy of knitting together with others. That is why we chose a garment which can also be knit by beginners. However, all the numerous creative possibilities do require a little math, when planning the colors and the corresponding amounts of yarn. All you need to know when doing these calculations can be found here.
If you find the calculations too intimidating, don’t worry – the patchwork technique is very forgiving of small errors! With this design, no one will notice if you need to order more yarn and can’t find any of the correct dye lot.
 
Of course, you can also make it easy on yourself by also using the Soft Mix and Fashion Pieces yarns, and in the same amounts, as used in the original version of the Pieceful Cardigan:
 
8 balls of Fashion Pieces 00398, schwarz jaspé (sleeves and band, left)
14 balls of Fashion Pieces 00499, schwarz dégradé (patches, upper right)
3 balls of Soft Mix 00199, schwarz dégradé (patches, lower right)

 

To make your selection a little easier, we from Schachenmayr’s online team share our favorite color combinations with you ...
