Using a different color scheme and different yarn can really change the effect of a fairisle pattern. As you can see from Protoype 1, color makes a huge difference!
|Prototype 1: DROPS Alpaca|
|Prototype 2: Wollmeise Twin|
Prototype 2 was knit with some scraps of Wollmeise Twin from when I knit Little Birds. Wollmeise is a sock yarn and is slick and very defined giving the mittens a really graphic, sharp look. The colors are a pairing of 2 very contrasting colors and man, does that motif pop! The colors almost vibrate.
The Hopi Mittens are still currently in testing. Look out soon for a link to the upcoming pattern!
