Color in your projects

Color Inside Kraemer Yarns

Making Mauch Chunky yarn at Kraemer Yarns

Grey days, winter blues and snowy whites are common in February. Inside Kraemer Yarns, we are bursting with color! Today we will share a few ways you can add color to your projects!

Colorwork Patterns from Kraemer Yarns

Free knitting colorwork patterns from Kraemer Yarns

Adding color to your knitting or crochet project can range from simple duplicate stitches or stripes to complex multi-color fair isle! Remember, there are no knitting or crochet police! You can start with a solid color project and add color as you see fit. If the pattern is written for multiple colors, feel free to swap out a color or two for the ones you really like! Sometimes, though, you need a pattern to get you started. Shown above are just a few from the ever-growing collection at KraemerYarns.com: (clockwise from top left) Ranch Rose Sweater in Stotts Ranch Worsted, Sporty Stripes Hoodie in Perfection Chunky, Fair Owl Hat in Perfection DK, and Slip Stitch Stripe Hat & Mitts in Perfection Chunky.

Crochet the Cute and the Classic

In honor of March being National Crochet Month, Kraemer Yarns would like to spotlight the beautiful projects be worked with a hook and our yarns! Crochet stitches can create a very different fabric texture than you can with knit stitches  and the projects range from cute and cuddly toys to cozy blankets and gorgeous garments.

Kraemer Yarns Crochet PatternsThe crochet section of the Kraemer Yarns free pattern collection has something for everyone and is beginner friendly. We have baby booties in Perfection DK and a Crochet Baby Blanket in Perfection, a classic baby gift to create in an easy-care yarn!  Maybe this spring you could use a practical Go To Market bag in Tatamy Tweed DK, or a trendy Flower Infinity Scarf in Sterling Silk and Silver? We are in the final stages of editing two new crochet patterns, so please stay tuned!

Kraemer Yarns in a Vintage Crochet SetSharing your projects on Ravelry is a great way to inspire others. We absolutely love this Textured Shell Stitch Wrap that LaTomBoye crocheted in Sterling Silk and Silver. Then we spotted her dress! Also crocheted in Sterling Silk and Silver, the Silver Skimmer is a 1968-1969 McCall’s pattern. LaTomBoye’s project notes are quite extensive, and we think this is an amazing project! You’ll also want to take a look at our Pinterest Crochet board. We’ve curated the board to include tips, tricks, project ideas and more! Do you have a crochet tip or project to share?
