Five Colour Friday

Five colours can be used in a number of ways…..

For a change I thought I’d try making blocks in alternate colours and use a unifying colour for the border. Here’s the result:

For this experiment I used the Posy Square that I’ve written about previously.

Alternating blocks becomes more effective as the size grows

And it can become as large, or stay as small, as you wish

So, which colours have I used?

Stylecraft Special DK in Tomato, Cypress, Sage and Copper. They are joined with Camel

I have to admit that Stylecraft have a very good range of colours in their Special DK range. It’s an acrylic yarn – but a good quality acrylic that washes well. Deramores sell the whole range – including the new colours that I have yet to use. Use the link and take a look around – I’m sure you’ll find something of interest.

I hope you enjoy this series, and that you find it useful. You can follow me on Instagram as CrochetalongwithNuvofelt, and I’m here on Ravelry. Find me on Facebook via the link in the sidebar. Drop in and say ‘Hi’.

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…..
