Potion is my 2022 Halloween colourway - but I wanted a colour that would work year round. This one would be lovely for a little cropped cardi or a one skein shawl. Shades of rust with darker speckles and hints of hot pink + green!
Pumpkin shown crocheted in Potion with this free pattern - video tutorial available. I used fingering weight held double and a 4mm hook - this will give you enough yarn for two pumpkins in the size shown, or one large and one small (hold fingering yarn single for a smaller pumpkin and use a 2.5mm hook) Alternatively you can just use DK weight!
Alternating skeins while knitting larger projects will result in the best result when using hand dyed yarn.
All yarn is dyed with professional acid dyes and lots of love by Sarah. I recommend washing in cool water with a small amount of wool wash or mild soap & laying flat to dry. When using very saturated colours with lighter colours a wet block test swatch is recommended.
