Emerald and Amethyst is part of my new Gemstone Collection. It's a collection of assigned pooling colorways that look great on their own but also look great with a variety of my variegated and semi-solid colorways.
About three quarters of the skein is teal green (emerald), and the other quarter is berry (amethyst).
You can use these colorways for...
- Regular knit, crochet, and weaving projects of any sort
- Assigned pooling patterns like Dawn Barker's amazing patterns and my own The Long Way Round pattern where you do something different when you get to the assigned color.
- Combining with variegated and semi-solid colorways to create something amazing. You can see a list of yarn pairings below to see what colorways look great with this one.
I dyed it on Stained Glass Sock, which is a soft and squishy 2-ply yarn made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. The thing that makes Stained Glass Sock uniquely wonderful is that one ply is made of white wool while the other alternates between black and white, so when I dye the yarn, it looks like leaded stained glass--or in this case the black lines in butterflies' wings. Each 100 gram skein has 400 yards.
Emerald and Amethyst would look great with any of the following:
After the Rain
Party Like It's 2024
Phantom of the Opera
