Let’s Talk About Simplicity Spray

We have carried HiKoo Simplicity for several years and like the verasatility of this lighter weight worsted yarn. With Simplicity Spray, HiKoo is capturing the unique color process of a speckling and a tonal technique, all wound up in cakes that are fun to knit.

Suggested Patterns for Simplicity Spray

Alzada Shawl by Irina Eberhardt — Pattern available on Ravelry. Shown here knit in Color 668 Boyish. The pattern calls for three colors but with Spray and the 200 gram cake, you can knit this shawl with one cake and not change colors.

TopKnot Hat by Graywood Designs — available both on our website HERE and on Ravelry Here.  One cake of Simplicity Spray would probably make 6-8 of these hats for little kids. If you are a charity knitter, this yarn allows you to knit away and get great results with every little hat that comes off your needles.

AND if you are a hat knitter, consider adding a set of AddiClick Short Tip Rocket interchangeable needles to your needle collection. The short tips allow you to make any size of 16″ needle from US #4 on up to US # 10 and 11. The set includes a cable that is short enough to make a 16″ needle. It is an awesome tool to have at your fingertips for knitting hats.
