Full disclosure, Hannah reached out to me to see if I was interested in knitting this pattern for her in a color. All her samples and tests were done in neutrals and she really wanted to see what color I would go with for this pattern and she even gave me some Quince & Co Owl yarn to knit it with. I’ve never used Owl before, it’s a wool and alpaca blend. I was interested in trying it out but it just hadn’t been in my budget. I chose the color Yucca, a springy yellow with a hint of green to it.
I live for cardigans, I really do. They’re a nice warm layer and sometimes a great alternative to a jacket in the fall or spring. And I love anything with pockets, so I loved her idea of doing a pop of color for the pocket on this pattern. So even if you knit it in a neutral you can still add a little pop to the body with your pocket. I had another color of Owl that I could’ve used but it didn’t pop enough for me against Yucca so I went with some leftover Madelinetosh I had from this brioche hat because I thought the turquoise would be a great accent.
I was totally right. LOL It’s a fun pop and it matches nicely with the bright wall in my kitchen. Oh and for anyone curious about my t-shirt, it’s the Wild Fang Women’s History Month Wild Feminist T-shirt. They have a few sizes still left.
