Let's Start a Project ...
Explore the Rainbow
Join our exploration of the rainbow for 2023. We had a blast in 2022, pairing a solid rainbow color with a variegated, but we are leaning into ease in 2023, so our Explore the Rainbow is a lot less intensive. We are featuring one color per month, working our way through the rainbow by showcasing a solid one month, and a bespeckled version of that solid the next. We are using our popular DK and are giving you three different options for making.
a featured one-skein pattern for the month
the knit blanket* instructions (easy-breezy blanket with a bit of yummy texture)
the crocheted blanket* instructions (easy-breezy granny stripe blanket)
*The blanket patterns will measure approximately 60" x 60" wide when finished.
January features a sock pattern in DK for this lovely skein, Liberally Bleeding Heart. Pattern is free with LBH yarn purchase!
We're sticking to the beginning of the rainbow for February's Explore the Rainbow kit. Bespeckled Raspberry is the sister color to January's Liberally Bleeding Heart. The featured pattern for this month is Shannon's East Portland hat, a fun and fast pattern that is so super textured and squishy (our fave hat combo, to be honest). We didn't do this for our sample, but this hat is even cuter with a pom-pom on top (most hats are, if you ask us).
March's Explore the Rainbow is Glazed Carrot! We are loving this orange. The free with purchase pattern is Jazz Age Mitts knit and modeled above by Elizabeth Ash. Keep following us to see some progress pics of the cool rainbow blankets people are making as well.
April: Enjoy this tangerine dream of a combination, friends! A fun and quick DK sock pattern paired with our delicious Bespeckled Tangerine will keep your needles and tootsies happy this Spring, through any and all weather Mother Nature decides to throw at us: rain, sleet, hail, or snow. Even sunshine. Please let there be sunshine.
May: It’s the fifth month of the year (what!?!?), which means we are leaving the world of reds, pinks, and oranges and heading to yellow-ville with Dirty Bird in DK. We’ve paired a simple but effective lace cowl, Stumptown Cowl, with this solid color, for a project perfect for this very transitional time of year.
June: Our favorite things to make during the hotter summertime months are fingerless mitts and socks, so we're heading into June making some mitts with a gorgeous speckled yellow yarn. Meet Bespeckled Sunshine, which, coincidentally, is our favorite type of shade under which to sit and craft in the Summer! We've paired the Luna's Mitts pattern with this colorway, and we gotta say, we're pleased as punch with the results!
July: DK socks are one of the best projects — so fast, so fun, so giftable! Now that summer seems to be here fully, we are embracing sock knitting with our July Explore the Rainbow project, and this pattern is one of our faves! We've paired Take Note with Canopy, and we'll just be over here making all of the pairs.
August: Make this fun hat for all of your Kith & Kin, and show them just how much you love them! In our new Bespeckled Moss colorway, this hat is perfect for keeping your head toasty while tromping through the forests.
September: We know you've been excited to see the next color of the rainbow and here it is....Turquoise. What could be more fun?
October: We're gearing up for pumpkin and ghouls season in Bespeckled Turquoise with the Zig & Zag hat pattern. Color us bewitched!
November is coming in like a storm ... obviously. Take a moment to calm the chaos of cooler temps, crazy weather and (gasp) impending holiday planning with the Downtime Socks in Honey Lavender.
