What is Mixing?
Mixing - or multistranded knitting - gives you the freedom to fashion your perfect fabric. Shibui Knits yarns are designed to mix and mingle, allowing your creativity to shine through in your choice of colors and fibers. The yarn combinations are full of possibility - and a pleasure to explore.
Create Custom Fabrics
You can combine Shibui Knits yarns to create your own custom fabric for your favorite patterns. The Mix Cheat Sheet, which lists a selection of yarn combinations with their relevant gauge and needle size, can serve as a starting point. You can match the gauge on the Mix Cheat Sheet to the required gauge in your pattern and, after swatching to ensure you like the resulting fabric, cast on in the new yarn combination. You can also take the mixing concept one step further: use the leftover yarn from your favorite Shibui Knits projects and mix them in new combinations in swatches. The Mix Cheat Sheet can provide suggestions for needle size and suggested gauge, but swatching is a chance to make a fabric that is entirely your own.
Mixing For Color
You can also take it to the next level by Color Mixing to create your own color effects. First, select the color you want as your base. Now decide where you want to go with it. Do you want highlights, low lights, an enchanting glimmer or to take your color in a more neutral direction? Do you want a subtle effect or a bold one? The possibilities are endless.
