Would you like to mix and match yarns together, but aren’t sure how to go about it?
Stay in the same color family, but mix it up with:
- 1 solid yarn with cotton, bamboo, or plant fiber
- 1 sparkly yarn
- 1 variegated yarn
This quick scarf I worked up combines Malabrigo Rios, Kollage Glisten, and Berroco Weekend.
What’s your favorite yarn mixing recipe?
When I was in Colorado for a work trip last year this time(ish), I took a class in making a “Bohemian Scarf” at the Longmont Yarn Shoppe. The instructor, Debby, had us pick out three different yarns (I bought them at the store since my stash doesn’t travel with me 🙂 ), a thick/chunky yarn, a thinner (DKish or maybe just a size smaller) and a funky Art yarn. We used the same size hook (N) on all three. Since then I’ve made a few more and have been collecting various art yarns for additional ones. I try to keep the yarn colors compatible, but I’m not sure if you’d say they were in the same family, esp. as the art yarns tend to be a jumble of colors… 🙂
Your combination is lovely! Would be nice to see the whole scarf. 🙂
