Welcome to ModeKnit Yarn. We're glad you're here.


Did you REALLY think we could keep it in the vault?

The Knitting Dead is back, but two of our beloved colors have experienced the True Death (uh oh, I’m Crossing the Memes … and here I go and do it a third time!)

So we bid a fond farewell to Hershel Greene and Penny Blake (the Governor’s zombie daughter, yeah, no one knew who she was…) and bring in two new colors.


I haven’t seen Season 5 of Walking Dead (airing October 12), although I know that Abraham Ford (Ginger, ex-Army guy) and Mary (Terminus big wig) will figure into it, but I don’t know enough about them to create a color for them.

SO, I’m asking YOU, our knitting audience & the general public, to submit your ideas for TWO NEW COLORS based on The Walking Dead TV show on AMC.

Help Us Choose our new colors for The Knitting Dead 2!

  • Maybe you feel there’s a character I’ve slighted by not giving them their own color [nods knowingly in the direction of a certain young fellow with a baseball cap, a great attitude & undying love for Maggie…]
  • Or perhaps there’s a location or event you’ve always wanted to see portrayed in yarn.
  • Or maybe you’ll be inspired by the first episode of season five, and want to see one of the new kids shown off in a beautiful, knitable (or crochetable) colorway!

Submit your ideas in the comments below right up until the Friday before the second episode of season five airs on Oct 17th.knitting_dead_color_sub_calWe’ll be unveiling our new colors immediately before the second episode airs on Oct 19th.


Leave a comment below to submit colors.  If someone else beats you to the punch, go ahead and submit your idea (we’ll be tallying up votes for Glenn, missing Baby Judith, or any notable Zombies and your vote/comment could tip the scale).

We’ll be choosing TWO winners, not necessarily at random (funny or incredibly useful color suggestions get high priority) and these two winners will receive a mini skein of the Knitting Dead Colors 2.

So get your thinking caps on and give us a SHOUT OUT! What colors do you want to see!

  1. There needs to be a Beth Greene color. It should be mostly subtle, pretty shades, but with an underlying POP, showing the spunk that Beth has. Main colors should be pink/rose/cream/lavender…then a pop of???? Green, of course.

  2. I’d like a color for Andrea, I know she wasn’t necessarily a favorite in the series (although I always liked her) she’s awesome in the comics. She’s my favorite character in the comics, a total bad-ass, and easily the best shot of anyone in the comics, she ends up saving everyone several times with her skills. For her color I’d think maybe something with blues and yellows with pops of black/grey/silver for her guns, since she often acts as a sniper.

    I also thought one for the barn (on the Green farm) might be interesting. Do earthly tones for the primary colors, green/brown/tan etc. but with streaks of red in it for the walkers lurking in the barn.

  3. I do hope you have a Glenn colorway coming. It would have to include raven black for his hair and dark eyes and maybe dark red either for the ball cap he wrote a lot in season 3 (I think) or the blood he always seems to be spattered with.

    1. LOVE GLENN! If anything happened to him, I’m afraid I’d have to stop watching the show. He’s the only one who generally acts out of love of humanity (and common sense!) I love how he’s not totally ruled by pride!

    Color 1 – MORGAN this could be tricky he’s so a ball of angst but i do think he’s going to come out of this brighter, i think there are still glimpses of humanity there.

    color 2 – BETH lovely floral colors with a streak of bold jewel color coming through

  5. I just found this page because I was looking for a pattern similar to the lace cardi that Carol is wearing in season 3 episode 15 when she asks Merle, in the prison, “are you with us?”
    There are so many cool knitted items in this show! Any hope for a pattern source?
