Color Affection by Veera Välimäki


It's done and I LOVE it!!!

Like all the 5200 other people on Ravelry, I wanted my very own Color Affection wrap too!!!

I ended up using the MadelineTosh Tosh Sock (100% superwash merino wool - fingering weight).

(and worked this on size 6 needles - 32" long)

I didn't bother making a gauge as the pattern says it's not really all that important... and since I'm usually too impatient to make a gauge, why do it, if I don't have to!

From left to right: Mica (grey), Candlewick (yellow) and Scarlet

This yarn is GORGEOUS and it work so well...

I can see why it's so popular right now.  I've been seeing it everywhere!

It's easy in the fingers and it doesn't unravel. I had no issues with it and there were no knots in any of the skeins at all!

This pattern is soooooooo easy and a lot of fun!

Pick three colors.

Start with the first color, then add your second color, then add your third color, and then end with your third color!

Here's my first part: 

My second part (having added my second color): 

Adding my third color!

And that's it! 

A pattern that looks complicated, but is actually super easy!

(and in sun...)

I have not blocked this yet, but I will... I was just so excited that it was done!

And this is how much yarn I had LEFT OVER!

I can make some socks outta that!  :)

I had read a lot on Ravelry about ravelers comments regarding the increases and how they were tight.  A lot of people did their own increases rather than follow the pattern.

I didn't have an issue with the increases according to pattern BUT I am also a loose knitter.  If you're a tight knitter, you might want to consider a different increase.

Other than that, this pattern is super simple and super fun!

Keep in mind that this pattern works from Top - Down!

So don't start with the third color (like I accidentally did!)   :)

Peanut does not seem to care about my new Color Affection wrap, like I do... 



  1. It's beautiful! Congratulations on a LOVELY finish! We had a great time camping! Thanks for asking.
    By the left a comment on my blog and I couldn't easily reply on email because your blogger status is set to "NO REPLY".
    If you fix that I think you will have more fun with your blog! ;)

    1. Thank you! I had no idea! I think I fixed it but am not sure! Would you mind trying it again? :)
