Knit Picks April IDP Showcase featuring Chroma

I love Knit Picks Chroma Worsted; the long smooth color changes are fun to work with. My favorite colorway is Pegasus; I’ve used it many times. I like pairing it with Chroma Worsted in Bare for brioche.

This is my Aspen Leaf scarf, re-worked in Chroma Worsted for the Knit Picks Independent Design Partnership (IDP) program. It’s a little shorter than the DK weight version, and very squishy. It’s featured this month in the Knit Picks IDP Showcase, which is all about their Chroma yarns. All Chroma yarns are on sale 20% off this month. That means Chroma Worsted, Chroma Fingering, Chroma Twist Worsted, and Chroma Twist Bulky.

My reworked Athena Entrelac Cowl is also featured in the IDP Showcase. And I found out that I have my own Knit Picks Designer Showcase page, so if you’re interested in all my Knit Picks patterns, there they are!

April is starting off chilly and wet here, so wool is still a big part of the wardrobe!

Yesterday was the debut class for my Fanfare Assigned Pooling Cowl/Hat, and we had fun! We talked about many ways you can adjust your knitting for assigned pooling, and a little bit about other planned pooling as well. This is a one skein quick knit in worsted weight yarn, and the coziness is still welcome this month.

What are you knitting in April? I’m finishing a fingering weight assigned pooling piece, and then I need to decide what’s coming next…

    Thanks for the alert about Chroma and your associated patterns. I am a big fan of long, slow, interesting color changes. Not so much a fan of singles yarn construction, but for these colors I’ve definitely braved that situation.

    This month I’m just finishing a linen top (hoping that it turns out “true to swatch” once it’s washed). I also have an Eight Days of Easter shawl kit – some of the days include assigned pooling. It’s based on eight different butterflies, so there will be color fun there.

    After that – who knows? I haven’t forgotten that I need to dive into brioche. I even took your book to Staples and had it spiral bound so it will behave.

    Happy spring! Wish you lots of color!
