Inspired by a vintage Russian cross-stitch motif, the colorwork of the “Pique Tuque” evokes the domes of Russian Orthodox churches, ocean waves, and spring.

While simple enough for those new to colorwork, I promise there is plenty here to pique the interest of more experienced knitters. The pattern pops when knit in a darker, contrasting color to the main color, but feel free to explore and make this your own.

I don’t have the words to do this yarn justice. It’s absolutely gorgeous! The colour is unbelievably beautiful and it’s soooo soft. This is my first hand dyed yarn and I’m just completely blown away by the superb quality. I love that the yarn info was attached to the yarn with a stitch marker. I can’t wait to knit it up and will definitely buy from The Spinnacle again!

A fantastic seller! Super friendly and helpful, even in these crazy times. And the yarn is SO gorgeous, it's unbelievably soft and easy to work with and the green is such a beautiful color. I made a bralette and matching shorts and absolutely love them both! 😊
