Hey, I’m Hannah!

I have been designing crochet patterns for over a decade and have always adored experimenting with colour in crochet. It wasn’t until recently that I realised that this is something that lots of people are really nervous about!

What if the combination doesn’t work? What if the balance is off? How do I choose complimentary colours for my decor? How do I know if they will clash? What are the rules for colours? Do I have to follow them?!

So many questions and so difficult to get it right!

I know that for many this has been a stumbling block to even starting a crochet project. Finding the courage to try out a combination of colours or indeed a colourwork technique can be so daunting!

Well, I’m here to help get it all figured out and give you the confidence to choose and then use any colours you like.

Why are we focussing on blankets?

Colour theory and crochet techniques is such a vast topic that I thought it best to narrow our projects down for now!

You can of course apply all of these principles and ideas to ANY crochet project that you like. In fact, I can’t wait to hear what you try them out on 🙂

For now though, blankets are the perfect place to demonstrate how all the theory and techniques work to combine colours and stitches.
