Knitting inspiration for Party of Five gradient minis by SweetGeorgia Yarns
We’ve had these cute little ‘Party of Five‘ packs of mini skeins by Canadian indie-yarn company SweetGeorgia Yarns for a while and people really love the gradients! There’s nothing quite like seeing the colours shift as you’re working with them, but the possibilities of what to knit with them are almost paralysing! Just for fun, we took out all of the colours from all five sets we have in stock and put them in rainbow order. Wow, right?
Each pack features 5 x 25g mini skeins of their most popular yarn, Tough Love Sock – a super soft yet super strong yarn made up of 80% superwash Merino and 20% nylon. The skeins are approximately 105yards each, or roughly 525 yards total in the pack – making them excellent value. We trawled through Ravelry to show you some of the many pattern options for these yarns. Read on to be inspired!
This bandana-style shawl is quick and easy garter stitch. With an easy-to-follow pattern, this is perfect mindless summer project knitting (think on planes, trains, in the car or at the beach!). Even better, it’s a free pattern!
Designed to use up every last bit of the Party of Five packs, the Soft Twilight shawl uses delicate slipped stitches and beginner cables to a create a detailed, textured fabric that is much easier than it looks.
Wanting something a little spicier? Try pairing the Party of Five pack with a solid, neutral colour for an even bigger shawl. This gorgeous shawl by Melanie Berg is a mixture of colour and texture with slipped stitches and short rows.
If you fancy making a study of stripes then the EVO socks are the way to go. This free pattern leaves the simplicity to the stripes, making this a quick knit.
The Otis Socks by sock designer extraordinaire Rachel Coopey are a fantastic way to show off a gradient, and your colourwork skills too! Pair the Party of Five pack with a solid, neutral colour and the result is a yummy pair of socks too pretty to be hidden in shoes.

If cowls and chevrons are more your thing, why not combine them to make an infinity cowl? The slanting zigzags of this cowl are a lot of fun and an easy knit.
Sometimes simplicity is best and these easy, fingerless mitts do a great job of showing off the colours in the Party of Fives. Even better, there’s enough yardage to knit two pairs – one for you, and one for a friend!
Whatever you decide to knit, don’t forget to share the results with us on Instagram #tvhhaul and also show the folks at SweetGeorgia with #sweetgeorgiayarns. We can’t wait to see what you make!
