Colour Packs


Colour makes my heart sing!
I describe myself as a crochet artist
but if you look at my crochet its all very simple . . . 
its the colour combinations that excite me!


This colour palette for my turquoise granny square blanket
 is so beautiful. I designed it with myself in mind planning a 
granny square blanket with a turquoise background for my own home.



The granny squares I made earlier
were made up into samples for my workshops
 and I've decided to keep these for future inspiration.

You can read the tutorials by following the links here





So I've stared again!
I've had a longing for a blanket with a turquoise background for a while now!
This time its going to be made with my new love
 hexies!
If you missed my post a few weeks ago
 you can read about my first 2 hexie blankets 

I am using a pattern from the lovely book
Granny Squares by one of my favourite crochet designers


This week I've been making batches of the 2 round flowers
 which will form the middles of the hexagons


I am always being asked about how I find
 all the colour combinations for the flowers! 
This is the part I love, I guess have a Mathematical brain helps! 
I will write a blog post about this soon to help you all out!


I'm varying my work
 with some flowers 
then some joining


and I've adapted the 
 to work for my hexagons


Its really coming on fast as this join is so easy


and I am so delighted with the turquoise background.
It is everything I wanted and really makes the flowers pop!


I am delighted to tell you all
 that I am now working with the lovely people at Deramores
 and they have begun selling my colour packs!


So if you fancy a gorgeous turquoise blanket 
you can buy this colour recipe

I'd love to see your makes in these colours! 
Do post pictures on your Instagram and Facebook feeds 
and tag me in them to see!
 Its really wonderful that we are part of a global crochet community!

Wishing you all a happy hooky weekend

Well, I think the colours are beautiful! You may think your crochet is simple but the real skill is in how neat it all look, very professional crochet I think. Congratulations on the partneship with Deramores, here's to many more lovely packs.

I have recently discovered your blog and am loving it. You have really inspired me with your use of colour and I now have several blankets on my 'to do' list. One thing I have never tried is the continuous joining method which I am looking forward to trying on my next project. xx

A lovely colour combination. Every time I see your latest colour scheme, I just want to grab some yarn and get crocheting. You have a wonderful eye for colour.
