Patone’s Color of the Year : Ultra Violet!

Pantone’s color of the year influences all areas of design. From home-wares to fashion to yarn! This year the color is Ultra Violet!

Most of us designers were THRILLED when we saw the choice. Purple?! How could we not love it? Go look in your stash – I’ll wait.

How many skeins of purple yarn did you see?

If less than 5…you need to head to Joann’s right now or our friends at Knit Picks and stock up!

Once I found out what the color of the year was, I scoured the past issues of Happily Hooked and Pattern Pack Pro to find my favorite purple projects (try saying that five times fast…)!
