As I promised, In today’s post I’m sharing 5 more Stylecraft Yarn’s colour schemes, all featuring a brand new Stylecraft colour.
Colour scheme ideas for Stylecraft Yarn
Today’s colour schemes feature Boysenberry, Kelly Green, Cypress, Empire, Mustard and Grass Green.
1. Midnight, Fondant, Boysenberry, Kelly Green, Saffron, Spice and Claret. The variety of these colours is a winner for me; there’s blue, green, pink, yellow, orange and even a bit of red. The Kelly Green shade brings it all together; Midnight, Fondant and Boysenberry are great together, as are Saffron, Spice and Claret.
2. Storm Blue, Grape, Cypress, Stone, Meadow and Sage. This one certainly challenged me; I’m often drawn to pinks and bright colours, so thinking up a combination for Cypress took some time! I like to think of this as grown up and actually, now I look at it, I like this colour scheme a lot.
3. Cloud Blue, Pomegranate, Empire, Fondant and Spring Green. Love this! Now these are definitely more my colours. Empire is very bright and gets even brighter when you pair it with Pomegranate, but the Cloud Blue and Spring Green help to soften it.
4. Walnut, Lime, Bottle, Mustard, Burgundy, Copper and Stone. This has autumn written all over it, doesn’t it? I pushed myself away from pinks and blues and tried to think of Mustard as autumnal. Walnut and Lime are a great combination and the richness of Bottle works well in this colour scheme.
5. Sunshine, Royal, Grass Green, Jaffa and Fiesta. After my first post on the new collection I’ve had a lot of comments from crafters who were surprised at just how bright Grass Green is – and I have to agree. It definitely has it’s place, so here I went to town and put it with the loudest colours I possibly could!
What do you think? Any favourites that spring to mind? I quite like how grown up number two is, though the brightness of 3 has won me over!
Thank you again for reading and for all the lovely feedback I received on my first colour scheme post last week, I hope you’ve enjoyed this part of the series. See you next week for some crafty ideas on how to put these colours to good use…
