Coral Colour Crochets – Colour Strategy

 

Let’s admit it. Even for experienced designers, choosing colours for stranded colour work can sometimes seem daunting. Colour expert Pantone has chosen a peachy orange shade named Living Coral, or Pantone 16-1546, as its colour of the year for 2019. The Living Coral colour is an “animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energises and enlivens with a softer edge”. So, this coming week we will outline several coral colour crochets which you can use as a guide.

 

HAT

The crochet hat is worked in the round, starting at the crown with a magic loop, and the designer is Sara Huntington. This hat is perfect for everyday wear, besides, It holds your dreadlocks goddess style, high and tall at the back of your head. A simple, very easily adjustable crochets  pattern that works from the bottom up, as a result, you can make it the right size for your set of dreads. This pattern is just fine for a beginner and has coral, coloured instructional photos to help you along the way.

 

 SCARF Cowl

Want to try your hand at making an scarf cowl ? This gorgeous coral crush  crochet scarf cowl is a great addition to your wardrobe in this season! It is made from a beautiful wool yarn in a stunning coral colour. The rhinestone and pearl buttons add an extra special touch to this already stunning scarf. Besides,  it is still nice and long so your can wrap it around twice to get that cowl look. This is a delightful creation of  Amy Ramnarine for one of the scarf cowl.

 

Glove

This pattern is for a mid-length fingerless crochet glove. It is a tribute to the coral rough fish and part of the “Sustain the Sea” collection. These gloves are knitted to a tighter than normal sock gauge to lessen the likelihood of stretching from wear. They embrace the arm like a second skin and will keep you nice and snug on those crisp autumn and winter mornings.

 

CARDIGAN

The designer of this cardigan is Tetyana Skobalo , and the cardigan is raglan style sweater knit flat on circular needles from the top down. The sleeves are added once the cardigan body is complete. In addition, this pattern uses a random lace technique, and is a unique lace technique that creates an organic and unstructured look. The cardigan has a cable and eyelet pattern, and the waistcoat has just the cables. This lovely round neck cardigan is great gift for dressing up for the new year.
