Pre-Order Wonderland Yarns Mad Hatter Triskaidekaphilia Mini-Skein Kit
NOTE: All Knit Stars Season 6 yarns are dyed to order. This kit is offered as a pre-order, which we expect to ship in February.
The Mad Hatter base is one of Wonderland Yarns' most popular bases. Soft, bouncy and round with excellent stitch definition, it is a profoundly versatile yarn.
Stephanie Shiman, the genius behind Wonderland Yarns, said "Nina and I spent hours tweaking and swapping colors until we had created the perfect palette for her cowl. When we counted, we had 13 colors. Poor number 13--it gets such a bad rap! We tried to choose a color to take out and just couldn't. So, superstitions be damned--it's 13 colors! 'Triskaidekaphilia' was born--not the fear of 13, but the love!"
Knit Stars Season 6 Yarn Usage:
You'll use 13 cheerful, bright colors of mini skeins hand-dyed on yummy Mad Hatter sportweight superwash merino to create this fun and funky cowl. Forget superstitions, there wasn't a single color that could be removed from this perfect palette. Knit Stars season 6 designer Nina Machlin Dayton is creating this 13-color cowl with multiple stitches so you can make a sampler to demonstrate "living colorfully!"
Your kit includes all 13 skeins and two colors of beads to complete Nina's cowl.
