Project colour inspiration: patterned paper

Finding colour inspiration for a big project such as an afghan or a rug can bit tricky, especially when there are just so many beautiful colours and yarns to choose from.

To help we are going to start a colour resource series on the blog, selecting colour themes and palettes from existing work and crafts that inspire us. This week it’s the turn of this gorgeous patterned paper from Papercraft Inspirations.

Row one:

Peruvian highland wool in Shrimp: ButtermilkHill, hand-dyed pure fine merino in harvest orange: KoutureCrochet, sea green hand-dyed cotton perle: therainbowgirl

Row two:

Burnt yellow superwash merino: ToilandTrouble, soft cream yarn: Polly, organic cotton yarn in deep blue: EarthtoUrban

Take inspiration from the things around you and we guarantee you’ll never be stuck for fabulous colour combinations.
