Surely Antonio had the gorgeous namesake fabric in mind when he came up with the subtle, beautiful, pink tones of damask. A versatile pink, Damask (or Damask Rose, as it is known on the bases outside of Twist) is easily translated into sophisticated projects for adults or sweet, girly projects for babies and children. The color itself has unusual depth when paired with cabled or textured stitches, and easily pairs with most any other colors as a semi-neutral. If you can’t wear a traditional nude, try the rosy hues of Damask! Each base takes the dye for Damask differently. Try Twist for a brighter pink or the ‘Damask Rose’ variation in Lace, Worsted, Gruesa, and Chunky for a more subdued hue. And don’t forget to look at the projects below for some inspiration!
