Fancy making Engle by Caitlin Hunter // BOYLAND Knitworks?

We were asked to help with colour combos

We love fluffy yarn so when Alex asked us for help with a potential colour combination to knit a sweater, we were happy to break out the camera.

The pattern they wish to make is Engle by BOYLAND Knitworks, (link goes directly to the designer's website) a colourwork sweater requiring four colours of yarn, ideally alpaca. We stock the entire range of Fyberspates Cumulus.

Alex asked for Moonlight, Magenta and Rust and wanted a background colour for contrast. I've photographed the yarns with 2x Moonlight as this will be the main colour and will be used a lot more in the project.

With thistle

Thistle is a warm dusky pink and as much as I love it, there isn't much in the way of contrast between this as a background colour and the others.


With blush

Blush is a soft pale pink which would give a good contrast between the background and foreground.


WITH ICE

Ice is a pale icy blue which adds to the contrast. I'm on the fence with this one, part of me really loves it but wonders if it's too cool next to the warmer colours of Moonlight, Magenta and Rust.

WITH Early Grey

Early Grey has a great level of contrast next to the other yarns and I love the colour independently on its own. I do think it almost looks a little dirty next to the rest of the colours.

WITH NATURAL

Natural is my favourite in this combination, even if it is a bit predictable. My second choice would be Blush for the pop of subtle pink.

Need colour combo help?

Let us know the pattern and send us a link or a photo. Please don't send links or screenshots to Ravelry as we're unable to use it for accessibility reasons.
