Five Colour Friday 

Five colour Friday is here again, and I think that I have found my most favourite red! 

These colours go so well together – and would make a beautiful blanket. Simply using a simple repeated block would be stunning

But don’t forget that you can make 120 different colour combinations using just these five colours. Details of this can be found here

As for this delicious yarn – it’s by Deramores

Burnt Orange, Fuchsia, Raspberry, Ruby and Wine

Worth going over to have a look especially as they often have very good offers, and always reward purchases.

I have really enjoyed using these colours. It’s been secretly in progress during the trials and tribulations of the Spirit of April. No view of the finished blanket for a while, though, as it’s intended as a gift.

Saffron. Tomato. Meadow. Cypress. Mustard.
The colours used are Stylecraft colours. Don’t forget that you can make 120 different squares with just these five colours. More Five Colour Friday inspiration can be found here.

There will be another post in this series very soon as I think I’ve found my most favourite shade of red ever! Watch this space…..
