Little Dove Colour Combos

Chloe

Chloe

I’ve made this blanket around 17 or 18 times! It was the most requested colourway when I used to make to order. I actually prefer bright, bold colours myself so I’m not sure what made me put these colours together when I made the first one.  I’ve called this combo Chloe because to me it’s an ultra pretty palette and Chloe is a very pretty name so it suits it perfectly :) I used the following shades…… Stylecraft Special DK Stone Cream Pale Rose Duck Egg Soft Peach I made granny circles, squared them off and joined them as I...

Marinus

  I made this blanket quite some time ago. I'm always really drawn to blues and greens, particularly greens as green is my favourite colour! To be honest I've had a bit of a job remembering which colours I used as it was so long ago I made this one! After lots of playing with yarn pegs and shade cards and studying my photos I'm 99% sure I used........  Cygnet DK  Kiwi Paintbox DK  Washed Teal Scheepjes Colour Crafter  Leiden Weert Alphen Urk Once again I used Attic24s Dune pattern for this blanket.

If you've followed me for a while you'll know I'm quite partial to an Orla Kiely mug! This colour combo was very much inspired by my Orla obsession so naturally it has to be called Orla! I used the following shades of Scheepjes Colour Crafter Barneveld Dokkum Goes Vlissingen Coevorden Nijmegen Verviers Arnhem and Paintbox DK in Vintage Pink I'm making African Flowers with mine (joining with Barneveld) If you need a pattern I can recommend the Heidi Bears one :) I hope you have found this combo inspiring and I'd love to see how you use it!

Charlie

Charlie

Charlie is quite a bold colour combo! Greeny blues and purples with a pop of mustard yellow! A good gender neutral scheme too I think :) I used the following shades of Scheepjes Colour Crafter Weert Spa Hoorn Coevorden Dordrecht Verviers and Hayfield Bonus DK in......... Lagoon Blue I made 6-round granny squares with this combo (Verviers was my joining colour) but I think these shades would make a lovely stripey ripple too! I hope you have found this combo inspiring and I'd love to see how you use it! If you want to you can use hashtag #littledovecolourcombo to...
