New Orleans Square at Disneyland with a coordinating yarn color palette.

New Orleans Square Yarns

New Orleans Square is one of my favorite lands at Disneyland and it’s the inspiration for this yarn color palette. When I design a knit shawl for New Orleans Square, I’m going to include arches and stripes. I like these shapes because they evoke the feeling of walking among the arched doorways and balconies. This color palette takes me right back to Disneyland and wandering through New Orleans Square. I chose one of my go-to yarns for this color palette, Hawthorne Fingering Multi by Knit Picks, in Kenton, Woodstock, Skyline, and Macadam. Hawthorne is a high-twist yarn that is washable and budget-friendly- what’s not to love!?!

Knit Picks Hawthorne is a very wearable yarn. You could easily use this yarn color palette to knit a shawl, hat, sweater or socks. I knit one of my favorite cardigans with Hawthorne and I love how easy it is to take care of. These colors would fade together nicely or work well as stripes, the possibilities are endless. Use this color palette to knit yourself the perfect, subtle Disney accessory for everyday wear.

Other Disney Yarn Palettes and Patterns

I’m working on a series of Disney-inspired yarn color palettes which will eventually be a series of shawls (or maybe other accessories). This is a project to channel all of my Disney energy while I can’t actually go to Disneyland. By the time I get back there, I’m going to need an extra suitcase just for all of the knits I need to photograph! It’s a good thing my family is on board with my yarnie antics! You can see some of my other Disney yarn color palettes here: Fantasyland, Frontierland, and just for fun- Iron Man!
