  1. I haven’t yet tried the pattern, but I plan to now that I have gotten a wonderful delivery of my favorite colors of Knit Picks Palette yarn!! I really like the colors you’ve chosen and they give me loads of inspiration!

    • Thank you Amy ! The thing with Palette though, is that it is a lot softer and finer than the Shetland yarns, and not as crisp or as sturdy . I just wanted to tell you in my experience, the Palette has to be knit on finer needles, and you might consider the larger size to compensate. Please message me and I can help you with modifications 🙂

        • Right, my suggestion for the larger size with either US 1 – 2.25 mm or 2.50 mm and I believe you may luck out and land right on.

          If you use the US 2 – 2.75mm you’d probably do fine to knit the medium, but it might just be more fluffy and loose , which is fine, just so you know what to expect. 🙂

I'd love to hear what you have to say...
