One of the things I learnt over the years, is that a good scale is an essential tool for knitters. Even more if you’re a knitting designer or pattern tester!
For this particular project, I wanted an overall cohesive look. But it gets difficult to achieve when you have to match both seven colours together with high contrast colourwork requirements! So I opted for the safe bet with pink-red-orange shades. Building a colour palette tips and tricks.
Sometimes colours speak to me, and sometimes it does not. As right now. I choose colours which worked together “on paper” but actually did not once knitted. I trusted my choices every time and even almost started without swatching at all. Well, I’m glad I did and you should too when it’s about colourwork.
