Today’s Five Colour Friday has a definite Autumnal feel.
Five colours from the Stylecraft Special DK range. They go together very well – with just a little splash of contrast to bring the combination alive.
Together they make a particularly striking blanket.
Lobelia, Citron, Spice, Copper and Tomato
Tomato makes a lovely joining colour. If you want to vary the position of the colours a total of 120 different combinations is possible. They will make a stunning blanket whichever style or stitch you use – maybe a corner to corner, or a ripple blanket. Vary the placement or use in rotation.
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 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.
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…..
Fancy a new project? This post introduces a new occasional series of posts with suggestions for colour schemes. I’m sure I’ve told you before that I love playing with colour, well these will feature some small combinations that will also act as ‘aides memoires’ for me too.
This collection features 5 colours from the Stylecraft Special DK range namely: Silver, Duck Egg, Storm Blue, Cloud Blue and Wisteria.
