Crochet Colour Palette: Wiley Kiely

When it comes to starting a new crochet project one of the most fun and sometimes challenging aspect of the project is deciding on the colours to use. That’s where we can help. Every week we will be posting a crochet colour palette of the week matched back to a range of wool stocked here at the Homemakery. Over time we will build up a library of crochet colour palettes so if you are ever looking for inspiration pop back and click on the tag Crochet Colour Palette.

Our previous Orla Kiely yarn pack was so popular we thought we’d do another, thankfully the Orla Kiely colour palette provides plenty of inspiration so we are swapping out orange and dark brown and introducing mustard yellow, nougat brown alongside a lovely jean shade of blue. I love how the pop of teal and mustard bring that unmistakable Orla look to this versatile crochet colour palette.

When I lived in London Portobello Road was my go to destination at the weekend, picking through the antiques, finding one of a kind clothes and of course picking up a cupcake at Hummingbird Bakery. One of my favourite parts of of visiting Portobello Road was the gorgeous colours the houses lining the road were painted, a spot of inspiration for this weeks Crochet Colour Palette.
