And thanks to this super versatile colourwork staple - you can introduce colour and interest very easily into your knitting. It would seem that this season there are no rules when it comes to sporting your stripes - so be bold, or be subtle . . . but be striped!
Try these combinations for subtle two row stripes - think understated, tonal and chic . . .
. . . or more high contrast, yet still classic . . .
. . . or the Nils Stripey Top . . .
If you're feeling brave and want some clashing stripes to brighten up the dismal days that we in the UK are calling 'summer', try some bold combinations that have plenty to shout about! Think vibrant, fun and with a dash of carefree joie de vivre . . .
Your baby can be brave, and bold and beautiful in the Oliver Sleeping Bag . . .
Stand out in the crowd in the Kerstin Striped Kimono . . .
. . . or experiment with wide stripes in the Hannah Cardigan.
Whatever your style, there is a stripe and colour combination out there to suit you! Not confident with choosing your own stripe combinations? We have alternative suggested colourways for all patterns but why not try out our colour tool under the 'colour' section to trial your own ideas? All of these patterns can be found in our range of collections for babies, children and adults available at your local yarn shop or from us directly at www.millamia.com
