Radiant Wrap {free knitting pattern}

Radiant Wrap Free Knitting Pattern

Have you heard of Pantone? They're THE authority on all things color and as a graphic designer in my former life I lived and breathed Pantone numbers. Even in my Ewe Ewe logo there's Pantone colors, the pink is 218 and the grey is always Pantone Cool Gray 7 (a real beauty in my opinion!). I am and always will be obsessed with color and I carry that passion for color through to my yarns. I designed the Wooly Worsted color palette to be a bright rainbow of color choices that every knitter could love.

I selected the Lavender yarn color near the end of 2012 never expecting that it would become the 2014 Pantone Color of the Year. When Pantone announced their trends for the year, I nearly fell off my chair! Look at this lovely color.

Pantone describes this color like this:

Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.

Wouldn't you like to wrap yourself in captivating harmony? I sure would love to emanate great joy, love and health! I love to showcase my yarn colors in bold, simple knitting patterns and the new Radiant Wrap is no exception. Knit a Radiant Wrap and envelop yourself in this magical color!
