12 boxes ~ 24 patterns ~ 36 colours ~ 48 mini-skeins
Our Colour Wheel Adventures yarn club is a year-long guided exploration of the colour wheel and colour theory in a fun and playful way! Each month you'll receive four 25g mini-skeins (three hand-dyed colours + natural) and two new blanket square patterns to play with.
Whether you're a colourwork novice or a pro at wrangling multi-colour projects, we'll provide ideas for trying out new techniques and expanding your skills. By the end of the year you'll have gathered 36 different colours and have enough squares to make your own unique lap blanket (approximately 40" x 45"/100cm x 115cm).
Debbie and Elizabeth will be your guides throughout the year, providing information and ideas for playing and experimenting with your colours. We've divided the year into 4 different themes, and each box will illustrate a concept related to that quarter's theme. We'll host a Zoom meetup at the end of each quarter to discuss what we've learned and share our colourful experiments!
