I cannot seem to get away from the colour green for March! This is the third year that I've done a green shade for the March installment of the TFA Year In Colour Club (see 2011's Clover and 2012's Sprout), I guess it's officially become a tradition! This year, however, I mixed things up by doing a more variegated colourway. With hits of blue and pink a skein of this Patina colourway has a little bit of everything. Gorgeous in the skein, and even prettier knit up!
March's shipment featured a skein of Blue Label Fingering Weight yarn and a sock pattern designed by me! Designing with variegated yarns is always a challenge. I decided to focus on crisp textures to allow the motifs to shine through all that colour. I always look to add a few special details on the heals, the toes, to add a bit of knitterly intrigue to a simple sock pattern. I'm really happy with how my Patina socks worked out and hope that you'll love them too.
The Patina Sock pattern is currently exclusive to 2013 Year In Colour members but will be available for all to knit in 2014. We're hosting a Patina Sock KAL in the TFA Ravelry group right now, wether you're part of the Club or not you should pop in and check it out!
It's never too late to join the Club! Join now and you'll receive the January and March Club colourways and patterns along with the next batch of Club shipments in May.
