freia Ombré merino lace in Vertigo and Ice Queen
As I approach the finish line on my Marlogram Scarf, I keep fantasizing about new color combinations for my next Marlogram.
I’ve learned a lot from my first one. Basically: don’t hold back, lady.
I don’t know what’s going to happen when I’m knitting this yarn. But at this point, I do know that even the most zingtastic color is dispersed when it’s marled—even when two zingtastic colors are marled together.
Possible combinations that have me thinking:
Vertigo and Dahlia
Vamp and Dusk
Orchid and Coho
Of course, I know a lot of us like subtlety, so here are three relatively polite combinations. There’s a ton of surprise waiting in these.
Neapolitan and Squid Ink
South Beach and Aurora
Woodsman and Canyon
And of course, you can go for the ultimate in subtle and work your Marlogram in two balls of the same color, as Kay did here to scrumptrelescent effect. This is Squid Ink x 2.
That glorious moment when the purple arrives? Priceless!
