Summer Flight Throw

Have been wanting to start a new big crochet project and inspired by Lucy at Attic 24 who has put together a palette of colours on the Wool Warehouse and Deramores websites, I wanted to have a go at putting my own palette together.

The throw is to go on the futon that sits below ‘Summer Flight’.

So, how about using the same palette of colours.

I found the yarn in theΒ Wool Warehouse

Stylecraft Special DK – Bright Pink (1435)
Stylecraft Special DK – Raspberry (1023)
Stylecraft Special DK – Magenta (1084)
Stylecraft Special DK – Fiesta (1257)
Stylecraft Special DK – Soft Peach (1240)
Stylecraft Special DK – Sunshine (1114)
Stylecraft Special DK – Citron (1263)
Stylecraft Special DK – Cream (1005)
Stylecraft Special DK – Turquoise (1068)
Stylecraft Special DK – Aspen (1422)
Stylecraft Special DK – Wisteria (1432)
Stylecraft Special DK – Teal (1062)
Stylecraft Special DK – Midnight (1011)
Stylecraft Special DK – Petrol (1708)

14 colours, and I hope to keep them in the same proportions as the painting, but we’ll see how it goes as I’m making it

Very excited about playing with different combinations of colours within the same palette.

I had such fun arranging them on the sofa – glee! is the word that comes to mind!

I also just had to add a brilliant orange colour
Stylecraft Special DK – Jaffa (1256)

Because I am also wanting to make some things in one of my favourite combos of pink and orange. With maybe a bit of purple and turquoise too – oooooh – I so LOVE that combo

      Thanks so much for dropping by! I’m so excited about the colours all I want to do is sit and crochet all day long – but the sun is shining and the garden calls – so many wonderful choices – I’ll be posting my blanket progress on the blog – and I’m thinking this will take a very long time – but there is a cosy comfort in that – hope you are enjoying the sunshine too.

      I feel a bit like a colour glutton Jackie – just can’t seem to get enough of those zingy ones – a true child of the 60s and psychedelia! Looking forward to sharing the process with you. ps. Do you have any colour in your garden yet?
