We are thrilled to offer Koigu's Pencil Boxes!
We brought in three different color combos as well as an assortment of great patterns to use with them.
So first of all, what are Pencil Boxes?
These are specially selected 10 "Demi" KPPPM skeins (25g) - (870 yards/ 250g total) pencil pack.
Think of it as a wonderful color starter pack or even as a gift for anyone who loves Koigu KPPPM fine yarns. You will find that there are many ways that one can these -- perhaps as a project themselves (see below), as trim, or simply to add little bits of extra color to a design.
100% Merino Wool
We have three color sets that you can see in the photos on this page. Honestly these are hard to describe -- take what I have written here as a general description and use the photos for more specifics.
1. Winter Storm (mostly neutrals, with blues and periodic shots of color)
2. Urban Dweller (rich reds with fuchsia and orange, plus purples and neutrals)
3. Berry Crush (blueberry, raspberry, goodseberry and the like)
We also brought in the Pencil Box Collection Book which gives beautiful small projects that one can create with a Pencil Box!
This is a collaboration with 12 designers who got creative with with these Pencil Box Packs to create 14 new patterns.
The talented designers include Kathy Merrick, Unjung Yun, Marji Lafreniere, Irina Puludnenko, Deborah Newton, Elke Schroeder, Maria Leigh as well as Koigu's own Maie Landra, Taiu Landra, Cathy Fascinato, Dianna Brown, and Joanna Clayson.
Photos on this page show the designs; just select from the drop-down menu which one(s) you would like! We will email you the pattern as a PDF (unless you tell us differently; if you want a printed copy make sure to let us know).
(More data and pictures of each of the patterns can be found here via Ravelry.)
One more thing: The current issue of Vogue Knitting magazine also has a lovely modular shawlette knit in the Winter Storm colorway. That is shown on the last photo of this page. You will need to get your own copy of the magazine, however, if this is the pattern that sings to you.
