  • In the Pink!

    October 16, 2015 2 min read 0 Comments

    There are many names for pink and it comes in my guises. You either love it it or hate it, pink isn't for everyone but it is set to be the colour to wear this autumn! 

    Veera Välimäki's Multi-Directional Cardigan (Designer Knitting Magazine, Early Autumn).
    I've just knitted this in Blacker Swan Falkland Merino DK, in Teaberry and Diddle Dee.


    The key to wearing pink is to find the right shade for you, it depends on your colouring; your hair and skin tone. Chose a shade that works with you not against you; so if you're pale keep away from paler pinks and nudes instead go for pink with a bit of punch such as lipstick pink or fuchsia.

    One skein is enough to knit a hat!


     Combine paler pinks with mint green or how about mixing with teal or red!

    Keep it simple, pink can be fussy enough so elegant style is best. If you don't fancy a full sweater knitted in pink why not knit some mittens to accessories your autumn look.

    These cable wrist warmers would look great knitted Debbie Bliss Rialto 4ply in Blush.


    Don't forget to sharing you latest knits on Instagram and use the hashtag #tangledyarnuk I'm really looking forward to seeing all your pink knits!
