15 Projects That Use Color and Texture for Bold Looks!

If I told you that you could make a knitted dress from just two rectangles, would you believe it? If you’ve been following our 2015 fashion show collection, you know that you can make stunning garments from simple shapes. Get ready for the next chapter of our exciting collection — Color and Texture!

This part of this collection focuses on rectangles to make dramatic looks from scarves to pullovers to dresses. These patterns are a great place to practice techniques like fair isle and entrelac. Since they’re such easy shapes, you can focus on your stitching. With projects like the Color Infused Afghan and Color and Stitch Sampler Afghan, you can try out bobbles and ripples in small pieces and create a beautiful blanket for your home. You’ll be amazed by how easy these beautiful patterns can be!

You can see all of these projects on the runway here! And, in case you missed them, take a look back at the rest of the collection: Simple RectanglesRectangles Sewn Together, and A Bit of Technique.

  • Unless the meaning of “maxi” has changed over the years, a maxi dress would be one that is full length. The one shown in the knit pattern above would be more of a “midi” dress.
