We’ve been exploring color theory lately and asked our Facebook fans what their favorite color was. As it turned out, most of our fans loved deep jewel tones like purple, burgundy, and forest green — all beautiful, rich colors that feel right at home as the season changes to fall. If asked, I’d honestly have a hard time pinning down a single color as my favorite. My bedroom is drenched in blush pinks and deep fuchsias, but my closet is filled with a range of blues.
Lately, I’ve been having a moment with yellow. At first, I introduced small pops of yellow into my life, like when I made a simple knit hat using Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® in Toucan. It was a safe choice — heathered grey flecked with pops of neon yellow. Then I moved onto mustard yellow; I didn’t own a single yellow item of clothing until I found myself drawn to a button down blouse in this hue. My last knitting project was a shawlette made from LB Collection® Angora Merino in Nectarine — its friendly tone toes the line between deep yellow and mellow orange.
We all need a little color in our world. While we may proudly sport our favorite color from head to toe, some colors need slight introductions into our lives. Looking ahead to fall, when the leaves change into a range of maple reds and buttery yellows, why not add some color to your knit and crochet projects? Cowls are quick projects, and break up the monotony of neutral-colored cold weather gear. Here are nine of them, each showing off colors in their own way:
