Have you made a Match and Move yet? Several of us here at the shop are working on them after having Martina here for Knit Night this summer and falling in love with the pattern. This is Elf Rebecca’s beautiful Match and Move. There are a bunch of different ways to wrap up in it and it’s such an easy knit.
Most of us have already decided to make a second one, because it’s fun to come up with color combinations. And – bonus – we have Wollmeise in stock so you can pick some and start in on it! You’ll want two solids or semi-solids, or one multi plus one solid. Two multi’s muddy up the lines a bit. Here are a few combinations that we love. The pattern calls for using Pure, but I know many of you have used Twin as well, so I’ve shown both here. (You could also use Lace for a lighter weight version, or Blend/DK for a heavier, slightly larger version, of course.)
