Colorful crochet projects…  What’s not to love about a crochet project made with happy colors.  If the colors are well chosen, I truly believe that a colorful blanket can make you smile.  I do.

But how do you know that you used the right colors?  Where do you find your inspiration?  Especially when you did not had the privilege to have an education in fashion or color techniques…

 

Well, one tip I can tell you… don’t overthink it!  I get my inspiration from my neighbourhood.  In fact you can draw your inspiration from anything!  From a bouquet of flowers, or maybe your favorite piece of clothing, from the cover of a book, wallpaper, a photo, …  Just try it, you’ll see that you’ll discover some really great color combination, that didn’t even think about before.

Still a bit in doubtful about your skills?  Why not try a book filled with colorful crochet projects and start from there?  One book that is great for inspiration is “Crochet in color” from “Kazuko Ryokai”.  It has plenty of happy projects with lovely preset color combinations.  The projects are suitable for a beginner level.  I especially love the blanket that’s on the cover of the book.  But there’s also lot’s of other fun projects in it, like coasters, a pillow, a cozy for your coat rack, …

Have fun with your colors!
