You all knew when Neve was born a new book couldn’t possibly be far behind right? We are proud to announce our newest collection: Mad Colour!
Mad Colour is a big one, 5 garments (sized baby to big of course!), 13 accessories, and with all the colourful possibilities it really seems endless!
This book is all about play. The patterns are simple, designed for experimentation. Dive head-first into your stash, fish out your hidden treasures and mix them up. Try a novel blend, or stick to a tried-and-true colour combo. If you are new to colourwork techniques, these designs are great for practicing fair-isle, slip stitch, stripes and intarsia too!

The garments in this book cover all of our favourite colour techniques, from fair isle to stripes, ombre, lace, and texture, what’s not to love? All patterns are sized from baby to big, perfect for those super cheesy family photoshoots!
We may have gone a little blanket crazy….we just love colourful blankets! Stripes of ombre, circles of self striping colour, chunky and marled, and the hexagons, oh the hexagons. A blanket for every season!
Our favorite thing about this book was our desire to keep trying out different versions of each pattern. When a black and white hat flew off the needles, a colourful striped cowl went on, when we finished some fair isle, it was time for some slipped stitches. Each new combination inspiring another idea or design.
Colour sliced and diced! This is the Slice shawl, grab 3 skeins of sock/fingering yarn to get started!
While most of our collections have a fairly clear progression from concept to book, this one was a little different. Colour itself is a big idea and we really wanted to showcase the different ways that colours can interact in knitting. We came up with the idea for Mad Colour way back in 2012 and have let it percolate ever since.
Colour can sometimes be daunting, so we have a hat pattern to get you started. Prism is 3 hats in one, slipped stitches, stripes, and fair isle. A little project to try out some new skills or a perfect place to test a new palette….did we mention it was great for using up those little scraps?!
So pick up your copy of Mad Colour, grab those perfect skeins from your stash, and cast on!
