A Perfect Pairing: Wallace & Huck
Here at BT headquarters, we’re always on the lookout for accessory pairings to keep us covered from head to toe in wool. Since the launch of our Fall 17 collection, we’ve been queuing up all of the accessory patterns in the collection. First up on our collective needles are the Wallace wrap and the Huck beanie.
While some may hesitate to mix such rich motifs, we think that the textured patterning of Wallace coupled with the high-relief cables of Huck creates the perfect partnership of visual and tactile interest. Additionally, pairing Quarry and Arbor gives ample opportunity to play with fabric, drape, and color, adding another layer of visible interest to your wardrobe — not to mention, you’ll be plenty warm bundled up in all of that wool!
With color stories still fresh on our minds since our recent post about hue and value, we thought it'd be fun to play with some color combinations featuring our three new Quarry colorways for a Wallace wrap matched with some of the deep and nuanced hues of Arbor for a Huck beanie. Whether you color-coordinate your accessories with your wardrobe or prefer to knit contrasting accent pieces, we’ve compiled some curated palettes to suit many tastes.
Granite — Described as a steady, enduring, medium grey, we think that a Wallace wrap knit in Granite would pair wonderfully with a neutral Huck beanie knit up in either Parka, Degas, Cobbler, or Fleet.
Lapis — If you’re a knitter who prefers clear summer skies, a Wallace wrap knit with Lapis will surely keep the winter chill away. Brighten up your Wallace by pairing it with a Huck beanie knit with Tincture or Thaw. Alternatively, a dark-neutral version in the Porter or Dorado colorways would look equally stunning.
Garnet — A deep red flecked with pops of several bright colors including purple, rust, and gold, a Wallace wrap knit with this colorway is sure to excite your senses. A Huck beanie knit with either Klimt, Kettle, Nightfall, or Potion would complement your wrap quite nicely.
It’s not too late to cast on your first, or maybe second, project for the #BTFall17KAL. Join in on the fun and start your accessory pairing today!
