Yarn Swatches

Ever wonder what our variegated, ombre (dip-dyed) or speckled yarns look like once knit or crocheted?

These yarn swatches will give you an idea of what to expect in your finished project. Please note that the color patterns on these swatches are just general suggestions and vary slightly for each colorway. The color pattern which emerges in your project will also depend on which stitch pattern(s) you use as well as the overall size of your finished project.

Each swatch measures approximately 5" to 6" on each side. Stockinette stitches were used for the knit swatches and double crochet stitches were used for the crochet swatches.
