Rainbow Child

All these colours are now available
It was with great sadness that we deleted our Prism range last month.  It's bright cheerful colour range has been popular with knitters & designers alike.  Alas it was raw material supply that let us down & after a 12 month search for a replacement, we had to face some hard facts.

One facet of Prism we weren't prepared to part with however was the vibrant pure colours that made up the Prism rainbow.  Solution?  Move the five main contenders across to Urban:  Jelly Baby, Lime Snakes, Play Green, Hula Hoop Purple & Crayon Yellow (which will replace Urban's Papaya) are all now in stock both in store & on line.  So you can now source your favourite rainbow colours in our fabulous superwash Urban base.   Looking for that perfect Rainbow pattern - Our pattern vault, Ravelry, is brimming with Rainbow patterns.  here's a list of our faves.

Rainbow Dress by Georgie Hallam
This pattern has become a favourite for little girls worldwide.  A great dress for those starting to learn to knit in the round & just such a practical, wearable garment.

Rainbow Nesting Baskets by Marinke Slump
I just loved these quirky little crocheted baskets.  A great starter project & best of all the pattern & turtorial are free!

Rainbow Child - by Rebecca Newman
Gisborne based designer Rebecca is a great supporter of Skeinz & our yarns partners. She's an up and coming designer & is well worth checking out.  This children's hoodie is a great one for boys or girls & is an excellent addition to any pattern collection & is sized from 3 months right up to 8 years.

Rainbow Penguins by Kath Dalmeny
I know, I know - Penguins!  But c'mon, this is me, you know I can't resist a Penguin!!
