Colour Combinations

So as Christmas is over and we are thinking about our next projects I thought I would blog about colour combinations, especially looking at larger pieces of work such as blankets and throws.

We currently have a lot of DK yarn in stock. There are probably 100 plus shades so we have picked some of our favourite colour combinations for you to try out using yarn that can be purchased here https://www.jm-crafts.co.uk/category_s/1814.htm. All of the yarn used in these combinations cost less than £1.90 per 100g ball so are affordable as well as beautiful.

Combination Number 1 – Teal, Barley & Cerise

This combination would look fab in a child’s room or split up with a neutral colour for a living room cushion or throw.

The Combo uses the following yarns available from JMCrafts (From left to right)
James C Brett Top Value DK – shade 846
Cygnet DK – Barley
Cygnet DK – Cerise

Combination Number 4 – Green, purple and oranges

This would be a great colour combo for a traditional afghan blanket. You may be a bit scared of all the orange but in a neutral bedroom / living room it would look great. Think Modern beige or cream furniture accessorised with a beautiful throw in these cheerful shades.
