Vintersol (“winter sunshine“) is inspired by a walk in a frosty, wintery meadow. This example is made with a soft and wooly double strand of Camilla Vad yarn, which creates a lofty worsted weight that is warm yet lightweight. This design lends itself well to a variety of color combinations. Choose 3 colors of yarn or simplify and go with two. You can even fade the background of the yoke, creating a gradient, while using a light color for the motif.
