HYS Color Club: Peerie + Dipyramitts.

HYS Color Club members just got their very first project!

Inside the bag, there are 2 skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Peerie to knit a pair of “Dipyramitts,” by Emily Greene. We included a color wheel, too!

Greene’s clever colorwork hand warmer pattern includes options for fingerless mitts, mittens, or convertible mittens.

Of course, you can make a pair even if you didn’t join the HYS Color Club – just pick a high contrast combination in Brooklyn Tweed’s soft and springy Peerie. Here are a few ideas!

If any of these catch your eye, pick your favorite and order online for local pickup or shipping! BT Peerie is $17.25 per skein, and we have 30+ colors in stock – come by the shop between 11 – 5:30 pm, Tuesdays – Saturdays to see them all.

HYS Color Club!

Announcing a brand new club from the Hillsborough Yarn Shop – the HYS Color Club!

HYS Color Club is a subscription of thoughtfully curated accessory projects for knitters who like surprises and love working with color! We’ll pair yarns and patterns to keep you entertained all year long, creating custom colorways for each project. Each season includes two projects (one smaller, one larger), and a few other surprises along the way.

Patterns: Expect accessory patterns from a variety of designers, a mix of mitts, shawls, hats and scarves. Each project will use at least two colors – think stripes, marls, fair isle, mosaic, and more!

Fiber: We love working with wool, so there’ll be plenty of it, and all kinds – sometimes superwash, sometimes hand-wash only, sometimes blended with other fibers, like cashmere, alpaca, or silk.

Gauge: The yarns will vary in gauge, from lace weight up to worsted.

Color: Choose from four color palettes – warm, cool, neutral, or surprise; select a second palette if you’d like a bit more variety throughout the season.
