One good way to use Uptown DK Magix is to pair it with a solid-colored yarn from the Uptown DK line. In this sweater called ‘Hey Baby‘ we can see the colorway Yellow Slumber knit together with a complimentary granite gray. The solid-colored ribbing and pompom in the contrasting color makes the subtle colors of Yellow Slumber really pop.

Uptown DK and Magix yarns don’t have to be used for kids’ knits only.

This warm cowl can be worn right next to the neck with no fear of prickliness.
