We featured a spectacular knitted skirt in one of our Manic-In Monday posts a while back. The Tilli Tomas Spicy Flirt Skirt is still getting rave reviews from customers. Recently a very creative customer come up with a wonderful idea for yarn substitutions for this skirt. She suggested knitting the background stockinette portion of this skirt in a solid color of Tahki Cotton Classic and using the bright and fun Berroco Origami for the lace overlay portion and the ruffles. Think summer style at the beach!
I love playing with color combinations so I jumped in to help our customer with options. We went with this one: Cotton Classic in color Light Mauve with Origami Vacay Pink and Sangria. But we liked this combo too: Cotton Classic in color Light Mauve with Origami Vacay Pink and Party by the Shore. Since I'm not a big fan of pink, I put together a couple more combinations that I liked. Like this one: Cotton Classic in color Dark Celery with Origami Bay of Biscay and Whale Whach. And this one: Cotton Classic in color Dark Celery with Origami Turtle Bay and Lemon Freeze. We have so many color options in Cotton Classic that the combos are endless! We loved this substitution idea from our customer, and we hope we get to see the finished project!
