Crochet Colour Palette: Nomad

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.

This weeks crochet colour palette Nomad is inspired by wandering plains and soft sunsets against the backdrop of a forest covered mountain. The colours are just beautiful and would make for a lovely modern crochet project.

We recently got a delivery of the new 2015 colours of Rico Essentials Cotton DK and the five new shades were so gorgeous they deserved a Crochet Colour Palette all of their own! I’m a huge fan of the curry yellow and duck egg (strangely named Jade Green!) which are very welcome additions to the range. Goody gumdrops is a rather lovely colour palette and can easily be teamed with Silver or Natural is you are after co-ordinating neutrals.
