Colour Love: Forest

These colours remind me of all the colours of the forest and sky and work so well together! The bright green really stands out as the dominate colour and the grey really adds another dimension. Adding cream or white helps the colours pop and would be great for a border. These colours would work well for a modern baby blanket or throw blanket.

Colour Love: Happy Rainbow

Rainbows are the best! This is a different take on the old traditional concept of the rainbow. The colours used are warm without being too bright, and are ideal for a range of projects. Add white or black inbetween stripes or for the border and you’ll have yourself a great coloured blanket!


Colour Love: Summertime

Summer is all about sunshine and the beach! I’ve mixed blues, yellows to create this fun, happy, and bright colour mix. This colour recipe would be great for all sorts of projects but I could really see it as a ripple blanket for a baby. Add white or cream to make the colours stand out or as the border!

Colour Love: Retro Rainbow


Use these colours for a retro spin on the popular rainbow combination. These warm colours are modern, funky, and are suitable for a range of projects. Use the cream or brown as an accent on the border to make the colours pop! I’m going to turn this combination into a v stitch blanket!

Colour Love: Country Romance


Using colour in creative ways can bring your work to life!
I am loving this combination right now! Greens and purples look great together, and adding the pink and parchment give the combination a boost and create depth. This versatile combination would be great for blankets, scarfs, hats, and bags for any age group. Could you imagine a baby wrapped in these gorgeous colours!
