Incorporate delightful hues into your wardrobe this season with colorblocking. It's the simplest way to knit with multiple colors without learning advanced technical colorwork skills such as Intarsia or Fair Isle. Plus, we love that weaving in ends is just as simple as a single-color project. This is a minimal and modern way to wear color, you may even find yourself playing outside your comfort zone. Have fun making your own unique palette with these 7 colorblocking knit patterns.
