Last year I was getting bored of single rows of colour in my knitting. I wanted to “shake things up” so I decided to do some colour-working. I realize this makes me a wild
woman who you may be shy of associating with, but check out a few of the results.

I started with this simple hat.
Then I got a little bolder with a more complicated pattern.

I liked it so much that I tried a Hello Kitty crochet graphgan with a lot more colour working than 2 colours!
