We love the color combo options for this pattern. You could go bold and bright or a bit more mellow with Vampire Queen and Pale Moonlight!

Wouldn’t this look amazing in Herbology, the soft green with some silver beads? We think it would be gorgeous!


 


Miss Winkle by Martina Behm is one of our all time favorite patterns! It’s perfect for variegated yarns as it’s a simple pattern with just hint of whimsy.

While many colors would work in this pattern, for us it is screaming Aunt Petunia!
 
Argylers Handwarmers by Sarah Wilson is a great pattern for an interesting set of fingerless gloves. The pattern is simple yet interesting and they are stunning on.

These mitts would be perfect for fall in Destiny!
 
We love this yarn and hope you do too!
