Inspirations & Colors

With its individual patches, the Pieceful Cardigan is ideal for playing with various colors and textures. It is the perfect garment for our mix&knit concept, because the different yarns yield almost unlimited creative possibilities for making your own very personal cardigan favorite. On October 7th we will all begin the Knit Along together. Everyone knits the same garment, but each in her (or his) very personal, individual version! Download the free Pieceful Cardigan pattern here.
We asked several bloggers and Instagram users about their personal inspirations and would like to share these, and the corresponding combinations of colors and yarns, with you here, as a small preview. Each of these cardigans will tell its own individual story.
What is your source of inspiration; what is your story? Let yourself be inspired by the bloggers’ ideas and find your own #piecefulcardigan yarn combination, for the #mixandknitkal – we are already looking forward to your photos!
