Knitting in Colour

For me using yarn is about having knitting in colour. I don’t think I could ever craft with a colour I don’t like. Or something entirely in black – a colour I have a love-hate relationship with. However I’ve found that many people are a little wary of self-striping yarn and find Fair Isle too complicated. So what do you do if you want to knit coloured garments? Well, cheat a little of course!

What I mean is use colours but in an easy knitting technique to create lovely geometric patterns. How about these?
