Poinsettias is one of my new Christmas colorways for 2023. It's an Ikat colorway with long sections of dark red punctuated by short sections of two shades of green.
I included a sample hat to show how it looks knit up in stockinette.
I dyed it on Sock Perfection, which is made of 80% extra-soft merino and 20% nylon, making it perfect for socks or anything else you want to be machine washable and hard-wearing.
Poinsettias on Sock Perfection
450 yards / 3.5 oz / 4 plies
80% extra-soft superwash merino / 20% nylon
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry
Poinsettias would look great with Cherries Jubilee and Deck the Halls. You can see all three together on Sparkly Merino Sock in the photos.
I made a sample hat with Poinsettias so you can get a sense of how it knits up.
