We are preparing to add some really exciting yarns to the website and I've been swatching to learn more about them before we start promoting them. I particularly like a DK cotton tape yarn not only because it has a very modernist texture, but because it comes in so many gorgeous colors. (This new yarn is also value-priced. Stay tuned!)
In my Tunisian Crochet Class on Craftsy, I teach a lesson on how even people who consider themselves "color blind" can put together some amazing palettes with photographs they find online and free tools such as Pinterest and ColourLovers.
With the help of these tools and a little photoshopping, I've combined the original photograph inspiration, a 4-color palette, and a selection of 4 cotton tape colorways to create 10 palette suggestions for the Tunisian Crochet Multi-Garment which is the main project that we create in the class.
I'll be working up one or two of these palettes in a swatch using the cotton tape yarn so that students can see the colors come to life in a garment, and also see how the yarn looks when worked up into a Tunisian Crochet fabric.
Which palettes intrigue you? Which would you like to see worked up into a swatch for the garment? I can't work up all 10 palettes, so would love your help to decide!
