Our Fall 2018 pattern collection
was inspired by images of the world's most beautiful libraries, filled with soft light, rich leather bindings, gleaming wood, and cozy seating. The colors we've developed and chosen for Fall 2018 reflect these spaces. They're complex, rich colors at medium intensities that will show textured knitting at its best.
First, the new monochromatic colorways:
is the brightest and clearest color for Fall, a brilliant true green that was made to match the old-fashioned green glass shades of banker's lamps. This green is sure to make other colors really pop in colorwork.
We love jewel tones! Beryl
is a medium green tempered with hints of teal and gray, making it very wearable. It's a complex color that will have a lot of depth in the finished knitting.
Not tan, not orange, not pumpkin... Caramel
is buttery and warm, perfect for cozying up in.
Developed as a color to represent Catherine the Great, Catherine
is a super-saturated dark burgundy red. Lavish, velvety, and fit for a queen!
Inspired by penny loafers and leather chairs that you can't help but curl up in, Cordovan
is a deep reddish purple-brown that will be a little different on every base.
was developed for some spring color combinations, but we love this saturated neutral taupe both on its own and in combination with other shades.
is a transitional color from the Sunflowers Gradient Set
, a light gray touched with a hint of yellow. Is it neutral? Is it grellow? Whichever it is it will stand apart from other grays.
Lycan is our wolf gray, a warm medium tone with hints of brown.
Rich and different on all the bases, Old Gold is treasure chest gold leaning toward brown.
Stowaway is a grayed, weathered medium navy blue. It can be lighter or darker, depending on the type of yarn we dye it on.
Suspense is a twilight blue with hints of teal.
And it's also time for new Babettes! Babs has been working with new dyes, combinations, and techniques to develop four new repeatable variegated colorways.
In Almost Paradise
, we've taken a mossy golden bronze and let it play with ballpoint-pen ink blue and deep raspberry, with lots of spaces for the colors to interact and blend.
... you'll like this one. Lots of cool colors harmonize well here: pine green, teal, blue, and shades of grape purples.
Goblins and Ghouls
Goblins and Ghouls, developed for Halloween and grellow fiends, features funky acid yellow, shades of cool gray-blue deepening to black, and greens where they come together.
Some rocks are more exciting than others! Spice up your earth tones with Rainbow Jasper
, a blend of rosy salmon and gold, overlaid with deep purples and browns.
