Little Dove Colour Combos

So many people say to me that they find random colour placement difficult so if you are one of those people you may find this method useful!  This baby sized blanket was made up of five round granny squares using five colours. I used the colours in the exact same order for every square but just used a different one of the five to start. You end up with five grannies all different but it's a great way to make them without having to stress over which colour to use next because it is always the same order. I used...

I’ve been really obsessed with little granny squares lately, they are so versatile and there are so many placement variations when it comes to colour combos. I also love patchwork and one colour little grannies all joined together are great for creating a patchwork effect. Edward is a bold colour scheme, if you’ve followed me for a while you’ll know I favour bold and bright over pastels! I used my favourite Scheepjes Colour Crafter in Tynaarlo Alphen Goes Verviers Burum Coevorden Nijmegen I found planning the colour placement before I started really helped and who doesn’t love a bit of...

The thing I love about corner to corner (C2C) blankets is that they don’t require a foundation chain…..And I particularly love C2C moss stitch!  I think if I remember right this combo was inspired by some fabric I’d seen somewhere.

They are so beautifully presented and will be so useful in giving you another type of visual for...

Rosie is a lovely rainbow combo that I have used many times. I’ve made granny circles, squares, chevrons and ripples with this combo…..It is very versatile! It’s also a really good example of why I mix yarn brands because sometimes you just can’t get the flow of colours you want just using one. Don’t be afraid to mix brands, so long as the yarn is the same weight and composition there’s no reason not too!

I love Attic 24’s neat ripple pattern, it’s the perfect easy on the brain crochet for me and rippling is just so relaxing! This colour combo was accidental really and a bit of an experiment, I was very close to frogging the yellow out as I just couldn’t decide if I liked it but I’m glad I stuck with it now. Frankie is a combo of…….
