Last Wednesday, I shared about the knitting challenge headed your way so soon. If you missed that last video, take a quick minute to check out all the details right here. If you are just looking for the available Faye Fringe kit colorways, click here.


Last Wednesday, I shared about the knitting challenge headed your way so soon. In our Faye Fringe Bag challenge, you’ll have the opportunity to grow your knitting skills, connect with other makers and dive deep into your own creativity. You’ll finish with a stunning bag to wear with joy and pride because YOU MADE IT! In today’s blog, I share all of the available color combos (there are twenty!) we’ve put together for you so that you can decide which one you like best before we officially open up registration on Tuesday, Feb 20th.

Ok first up, the color combination details! For this pattern, you'll need one skein of Spun Cloud yarn, one Wildflower Mini Skein Kit and one skein of our Daisy Chain yarn. Our Spun Cloud yarn is a bulky thick and thin wool yarn that is spun with two tiny strands of silver and gold lurex plied around it. The sparkle is every so subtle! We mix the Spun Cloud with 5 contrasting colors that come packed together as a Wildflower Mini Skein Kit. Inside each of these kits you get one mini skein (17 yds each) of five different colors. Lastly, you'll mix in a skein of our most special Daisy Chain Yarn. Bits of tea-dyed lace, hand-printed Jaipur fabrics and daisy trims are handspun into each colorway. Just knitting with this yarn is a little happy adventure!


Peruse all of the available color combinations at the link below.
