For years, I’ve been plotting a design that uses thirteen—a baker’s dozen—colors set against a solid background. Knit a Baker’s Dozen showcases 13 colors of Plied North Ave—a woolly, marled yarn—against a rich, saturated backdrop of Neighborhood Fiber Co. Organic Studio Sock. It’s a duet of sibling yarns!

The sample uses about 400 yards of Studio Sock and 400 yards of Plied North Ave bobbins—13 bobbins total.

You can knit more strips to create a shawl or blanket. You can also make your strips shorter to create a cowl or pillow cover. You can also adapt the pattern to use different weight yarns by increasing the needle size you use.
